The Atherstone Place-based Needs Assessment has recently been approved and published. This needs assessment is a pilot of a proposed programme of place-based needs assessments approved by Warwickshire Health and Wellbeing Board to inform the strategic planning of local services.
The Atherstone needs assessment covers the Atherstone North, Atherstone Central and Atherstone South & Mancetter wards. It provides an overview of the demographics of the Atherstone population along with local data on health; social care; education; employment & income; crime & community safety; road safety & transport; environment & technology; and services. The report has been used by stakeholders in Atherstone to produce a list of recommendations to address issues raised and improve outcomes in the area. An action plan has been drafted and once agreed will be published on the JSNA website.
