The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is an assessment of the health and wellbeing needs of the local community.

The JSNA informs the Health and Wellbeing Board’s Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy. It also informs the strategic plans developed by a range of local stakeholders. Furthermore, it supports the effective commissioning of services by the council and its partners.

The JSNA is an ongoing process, which we update as more information becomes available. We aim to develop a new online JSNA in 2020/21 to make data and analysis about Portsmouth more accessible and easy to use. You can send feedback and suggestions about what you would like to see to
