Leicestershire Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) 2012 - Stakeholder Engagement

About This Report:

The Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act (2007) places a joint statutory duty on upper tier local authorities and Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) to undertake a JSNA for their area.

The JSNA is a process that identifies the current and projected health and wellbeing needs of the local population. The JSNA is a key building block in enabling the understanding of the needs of local people. It contains our collective intelligence about local health and well being need, and forms a key element of the Shadow Health and Wellbeing Boards overall understanding of health and wellbeing.

The JSNA is designed to underpin the commissioning priorities and strategic plans of the Local Authority and Local NHS. Specifically it will be used to inform the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy that is currently being developed.
