Joint Strategic Needs Assessment

About the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is a local assessment of current and future health and social care needs of the people in Nottingham. Nottingham City Council and Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care Board (ICB) have an equal and joint duty to prepare JSNA.

The JSNA helps to ensure that the needs and the determinants of health of the local population, including wider factors that impact on health and wellbeing, are identified and agreed. It brings together information to guide actions that the Nottingham City Council, the NHS and other partners need to take to meet the needs of our population and reduce inequalities.

Please reference ‘Nottingham City JSNA’ if making use of any of our JSNA content.

New approach to JSNA resources -- April 2023

Nottingham City is currently working to refresh our approach to the JSNA, moving to an interactive dashboard format for key health & wellbeing information, presenting data by different geographies and population sub-groups with a specific focus on health inequalities.

Dashboards will be reviewed on a regular basis (timescales to be agreed). It is anticipated that PDF versions of the dashboards will also be made available in time. The JSNA dashboards are being produced in conjunction with Nottinghamshire County Council and the NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care Board (ICB) colleagues to include a whole view across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, and to allow comparisons to be made where required.

The roadmap for future JSNA dashboards and the overarching areas covered (number and titles of dashboards may be subject to change):

  • Dashboard 1: Health & Wellbeing - Completed
  • Dashboard 2: Children & Young People - Completed
  • Dashboard 3: Ageing well & Long term conditions - Publication expected late 2024
  • Dashboard 4: Wider Determinants of Health - Publication expected 2025
  • Dashboard 5: Health Behaviours - Publication expected 2025
  • Dashboard 6: Health Protection - Publication expected 2025
