The Lincolnshire Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) looks at a wide range of information sources to identify the key health and wellbeing needs of people living in Lincolnshire. It has recently been updated following a comprehensive review.
The JSNA brings together detailed information on local health and wellbeing needs and looks ahead at emerging challenges and projected future needs. It is not an end in itself, but a continuous process of assessment and planning. The JSNA is a shared evidence base and not the sole responsibility of one organisation. It is facilitated by Lincolnshire Public Health and brings together a range of experts from partner organisations including Lincolnshire County Council, the four Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Groups, Healthwatch Lincolnshire, NHS Providers, District Councils and representatives from the voluntary and community sector.
