The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) paints the 'big picture' of local needs so we can work together to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Portsmouth.

The JSNA directly informs the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy, as well as the strategic plans developed by the Safer Portsmouth Partnership and Children's Trust Board.

The Portsmouth JSNA website is currently under development, which means files (e.g. specific needs assessments, JSNA briefing notes, Ward summaries) and links that were previously available via the website are no longer directly accessible. Please contact: if you require a document you previously had access to that were under the following themes:

  • Burden of Ill Health;
  • Children & Young People;
  • Interactive Maps;
  • JSNA and Ward summaries and Outcome Frameworks;
  • JSNA background, Information Sharing Framework and technical information;
  • Lifestyles;
  • Mortality;
  • Presentations;
  • Protecting the health of the local population;
  • Services;
  • Social and environment context;
  • The people of Portsmouth;
  • What works

However, you can still access the strategies the JSNA informs and the JSNA annual summaries (2013-2016) via this page (below). Also, one of the more commonly used tools on the JSNA website was Public Health England's profiles which is still available via this external website:
