JSNA place-based approach

  • Warwickshire County Council (WCC) and partners carry out Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNA) to establish the health and social care needs of the Warwickshire population.
  • The JSNA is a really useful tool which is accessed both by teams within the county council and other stakeholders to inform commissioning decisions, ensuring the services are well-placed to help the people who need them most.
  • In 2015-18, the JSNA areas of focus were five key themes; mental health, carers, physical wellbeing, vulnerable young people, and long-term conditions. Moving forward, the JSNA will take a place-based approach, focusing on 22 geographic areas with population sizes between 30,000 and 50,000.
  • This will provide an even more accurate picture of life in local communities and will help inform service planning and delivery for Warwickshire County Council and its partners.

This is a pilot of a programme of place-based needs assessments  approved by the Warwickshire Health & 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.
