Bromley Joint Strategic Needs Assessment's

What is a JSNA?

A Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is an ongoing process by which local authorities, clinical commissioning groups and other public sector partners jointly describe the current and future health and wellbeing needs of its local population and identify priorities for action.

It is 'owned' by the Bromley Health and Wellbeing Board [external website].


a) Is concerned with wider social factors that have an impact on people’s health and wellbeing, such as housing, poverty and employment

b) Looks at the health of the population, with a focus on behaviours which affect health such as smoking, diet and exercise

c) Provides a common view of health and care needs for the local community

d) Identifies health inequalities

e) Provides evidence of effectiveness for different health and care interventions

f) Documents current service provision

g) Identifies gaps in health and care services, documenting unmet needs

The main audience for the JSNA are health and social care commissioners who use it to plan services.

It can also be used as an evidence base for preparing bids and business cases, by the voluntary and community sector to ensure that community needs and views are represented, by service providers to assist in the future development of their services, and by the public to scrutinise local health and wellbeing information, plans and commissioning recommendations.

This page provides the library of the annual JSNA's for Bromley since 2010.
