Current Work Programme

JSNA place based approach 2017

The JSNA has delivered significant benefit to the county, providing both a broad evidence base and bank of specific needs assessments based upon priority themes. With the previous work programme now complete, a JSNA 2017 update has been produced which shares the most recent outputs and updates on the rationale of the new place-based approach.

Place-based Approach

Warwickshire’s Health & Wellbeing Board recently endorsed a new ‘place-based’ approach to the delivery of the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA).

The JSNA provides the evidence base for understanding the needs of the local population. It is used to inform the Health & Wellbeing Strategy, along with specific commissioning decisions.

The current work programme, approved by the Health & Wellbeing Board in 2015, is now complete and focused on a number of priority themes (such as carers, children looked after, CAMHs and smoking). The next programme of work will focus on understanding need on a geographical basis. This is in line with the requirement to inform the Proactive & Preventative element of the Sustainability & Transformation Plan (STP) and the out of hospital programme, which seeks to build integrated services around populations of around 30,000 – 50,000. Transformation programmes relating to both adult and children’s services and community hubs are also based on the need to understand service needs at a more local level.

JSNA Geographies

The new JSNA Geographies were approved by the JSNA Strategic Group in June 2017 and can be viewed by accessing the maps using the following link:

Work is now underway to produce a set of profiles that will provide a statistical overview for these geographical areas. This will then be followed by the production of detailed needs assessments for each area, enabling Health & Wellbeing partners to commission the most appropriate services for each locality. Further updates will be provided as the work develops.

2016 JSNA CCG profiles

In 2016 the JSNA team produced 3 area profiles for the 3 Clinical Commissioning Groups.

These are the overarching profiles across CCGs and the place based approach will deliver 24 lower level profiles at 15-35k population level.  The timescales for these to be published are autumn 2017.  The current work programme is generating the 24 geographies from which the profiles will be created and the JSNA Geographies User Group is agreeing the new geographies upon which the profiles will be based and ensuring useful measures are included to provide the fullest picture of need at a smaller geographical level.

Foundation Workstreams

A number of supporting/cross-cutting areas of work underpin the JSNA, such as communications, data sharing and programme governance.

The information sharing protocol sets out the basic premise of sharing data to enable population-based epidemiological data analysis, whilst adhering to relevant legislative information governance requirements and Caldicott principles. This protocol does not provide the basis for the sharing of all data between partner organisations; it instead sets out the legislative requirements to which everyone agrees to abide to.  The precise details of information to be shared between organisations need to be separately agreed in the form of an ‘Appendix E (Data Sharing Agreement)’ which is part of the overarching protocol.
