Joint Strategic Needs Assessment 2009 – 10

Every local authority and PCT in England, led by their Directors of Public Health, Adult Social Services, and Children’s Services, has developed a joint strategic needs assessment (JSNA) that identifies the health and well-being needs (and inequalities in those needs) of their local population. The JSNA will be used widely: to inform the Community Strategy and the Local Area Agreement for the area, and to underpin strategic commissioning plans of both council and PCT.

The JSNA builds upon (and should be read in conjunction with) other broad reaching assessments of the health and well‐being of the Milton Keynes public, such as the public health annual report. The key findings from those assessments have been summarised here with web links to the full reports.
