Views wanted on guidance on joint strategic needs assessments and health and wellbeing strategies

Support for health and wellbeing boards and their partners in developing joint strategic needs assessments (JSNAs) and health and wellbeing strategies has been published in the form of draft statutory guidance.

Views are now being sought on the draft guidance, which:

  • lays out the statutory duties that underpin the production of JSNAs and joint health and wellbeing strategies by the NHS and local authorities (as members of their health and wellbeing board)
  • describes a framework that will lead to best practice in the preparation of JSNAs and assist with undertaking new joint health and wellbeing strategies
  • explains how JSNAs, joint health and wellbeing strategies and commissioning plans fit together in the new system
  • sets out how the enhanced JSNA process and joint health and wellbeing strategy will enable the NHS and local government, working with their community and partner organisations, to make real improvements to the health and wellbeing of local people.
