Who is the JSNA for?
Helps elected members and council officials understand and identify local priorities. Will also help different organisations (e.g. the new GP Consortia) work together to identify shared local priorities.
Service and Financial planners:
Tells us where to target services & understand how decisions impact on different communities in different ways.
People who spend money:
Helps to explain local demand, understand the market and shape what exactly it is we will do and buy.
A shared understanding of local need can make the case for increasing capacity and bringing in external funding. It can also provide a good starting point for having a conversation about your neighbourhood.
What goes in the JSNA?
- Local statistical data (trends over time for issues ranging from health conditions, crime and employment)
- Local opinions (feedback from members of the public, elected members and voluntary sector groups)
- Whether we’re doing what we said we’d do (performance data, and information about what the local community is doing)
