JSNA place-based approach

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. In 2017 a new approach was agreed by Warwickshire Health and Wellbeing Board, with the focus of the JSNA moving from a theme-based to a place-based approach.

Previous to this programme, two place-based needs assessments were completed. These were for Atherstone & Lillington areas and are available using the links above.

The new programme of work will focus on understanding Warwickshire’s health needs 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:

JSNA Surveys

To ensure the needs assessments reflect local priorities, we would like to gather the views of local residents and professionals working within the JSNA areas. If you would like to share your views on the area in Warwickshire you live or work in  please complete the relevant survey:

JSNA Profiling tool ‘Warwickshire Insights’

At the Health & Wellbeing Board in May 2019, the new online profiling tool the Insight Service has developed was demonstrated.

Around eighteen months ago, the Insight Service produced an Excel-based tool that enabled users to generate statistical profiles for JSNA (and other) areas. That was only designed to be an interim solution, and in recent months, the team have been creating a much more interactive and visually appealing alternative.

The tool, Warwickshire Insights, can be found at https://data.warwickshire.gov.uk/

It enables users to profile a variety of different geographical areas, but was developed particularly with the JSNA in mind. You will see there is a ‘JSNA’ tab at the top of the page, which contains links to profiles for each JSNA area across a range of themes (deprivation, health, social care etc). For example, here is the link to data on deprivation and poverty in the Atherstone & Hartshill JSNA area.

The tool has a range of other features, including the ability to view data in mapped form. We will continue to develop the content, including adding new datasets as they become available. We hope you find the new website informative and a useful addition to the evidence base for the commissioning of place-based services.
