Needs Assessments

Joint Strategic Needs Assessments

The Council’s Public Health team work with the Integrated Care System (ICB) and other health and care partners to prepare Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNA). 

The JSNA sets out the health and wellbeing needs of Newham residents now and in the future, based on a number of factors including: 

  • Population 
  • Use of health and social care services 
  • Patterns of illness and poor health 
  • Factors that affect health, including housing, poverty, employment and the environment. 

The aim is to find the areas of the borough where we need to improve the health and wellbeing of residents, helping us to plan, prioritise and commission health and social care services.
