Commissioning to improve health and social care services and reduce health inequalities
A Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is built on strong partnership working, already present in Somerset, and is underpinned by robust and reliable data provided by a range of public sector organisations in the county.
The scope of our JSNA provides a firm foundation for commissioning to improve health and social care services and reduce health inequalities.
It enables stronger partnerships between communities, local government, the NHS and other bodies.
The latest JSNA publication, ‘Somerset: Our County – JSNA Summary 2016’, focused specifically on the needs of vulnerable children and young people in our county.
You can see all JSNAs (from 2008 onwards) and a wealth of supporting content and documents on the Somerset Intelligence website
