The Rotherham Health and Wellbeing Board is responsible for producing the joint strategic needs assessment (JSNA) and all members are required to participate in its preparation.
The JSNA provides a comprehensive summary of information from a wide range of sources relevant to health and wellbeing in Rotherham. Its purpose is to present the available evidence of need as a series of answers to the following three questions:
- Why is this an issue?
- What is the local picture?
- What is the trend and what can we predict will happen over time?
The Health and Wellbeing Board takes this summary information and uses it to help identify our local priorities. These priorities then form the basis of the borough's Joint Health and Well-being Strategy.
