Bristol Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) 2016-17

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) provides detailed information on the health and wellbeing needs of the people of Bristol.

The JSNA process is led by Public Health and involves Bristol City Council, NHS Bristol Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Bristol Healthwatch, the Voluntary and Community Sector and other partners. 

It informs decisions about how these bodies plan services to improve health and wellbeing in Bristol, while reducing health inequalities.

It is also a useful source of data for VCSE groups in quantifying the demand for different kinds of support and designing services.
