Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) and Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy (JHWS)

The North East Lincolnshire JSNA is an overarching assessment of current and future health and social care needs. North East Lincolnshire Council and North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) have an equal and joint duty to prepare the JSNA and the JHWS through the health and wellbeing board. The evidence from the JSNA and the priorities from the JHWS will be used to inform commissioning to improve the health and wellbeing of the local population.

The JHWS is the strategy for meeting the needs identified in the JSNA and which sets out the vision, outcomes to be achieved, and priorities of the health and wellbeing board. The current JHWS for the period 2013 to 2016 can be accessed below and this will be updated during 2017 to reflect the findings from the JSNA refresh.

2013-16 Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy for North East Lincolnshire

The 2016 JSNA refresh has aligned the JSNA to the North East Lincolnshire Outcomes Framework.  The two key priorities for the Council are a Stronger Economy and Stronger Communities.  The outcomes framework has been developed to support the delivery of the local priorities in conjunction with partners and across sectors.  This vision for North East Lincolnshire as set out in the outcomes framework, sets out the five high level outcomes that the Council and its partners aspire to achieve to ensure economic, social, and healthy wellbeing for the residents of North East Lincolnshire.  These five outcomes are that all people in North East Lincolnshire will: Enjoy and benefit from a strong economy; Feel safe and are safe; Enjoy good health and wellbeing; Benefit from sustainable communities; Fulfil their potential through skills and learning.  To ensure the JSNA informs this work, JSNA summary reports for each outcome have been produced which include diagnostic data and intelligence relevant to each outcome.  The outcomes framework is structured into the life course stages and the JSNA summary reports also follow this structure: Starting well; Living well; Ageing well.

The JSNA is available at three different levels of detail in order to fulfil the needs of different audiences.

The top tier is the main summary report for North East Lincolnshire which can be accessed below and this pulls together the key points from across the five outcomes and life courses, to form a picture of the local needs and enabling local priorities to be identified.

The most detailed information is contained within individual topic JSNA summaries.  These summaries provide detailed analysis and information including that around benchmarking, trend analysis, and local variations and inequalities. All information has been aligned to one of the five outcomes or to an additional demography section depending on the topic.  The individual summaries have been completed with information available at the time of writing, however more recent data may be available from the data sources referenced in each summary.
