The new Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) website provides a detailed and objective analysis of local, current and future health, care and wellbeing needs for adults and children.
It is part of our work with partners at East Sussex County Council to take action against issues that affect health and wellbeing, such as smoking, alcohol, drug consumption, diet, sexual health and physical activity.
This website provides a central JSNA resource. On our new website you will find information and resources from local and national sources that provide an assessment of the needs of the population of East Sussex.
The information available on the JSNA website includes:
Overview reports such as the latest 2011 Needs Profiles that identify health needs and issues for an area.
Comprehensive needs assessment reports which focus, for example, on specific conditions, diseases or population groups.
JSNA scorecards containing a detailed breakdown of indicators that show the local population’s level of health and wellbeing, including wider contributors such as housing, transport choices and economic wellbeing.
