Joint Strategic Needs Assessment
Joint Strategic Needs Assessment


Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNAs) are a Department for Health (DoH) statutory requirement of Councils and local health organisations. JSNAs involve close partnership working on public health intelligence along with other local data and information from local residents to identify priorities for action for the Borough, informing high level strategies such as the Borough's Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy.

This Rochdale JSNA is a high level JSNA to establish a new set of priorities in the face of the changing health and wellbeing commissioning climate. It builds on previous JSNAs which are available on this website, and is a detailed piece of analysis which will be refreshed every year, with a major refresh every three years.

The JSNA findings will directly influence the commissioning of health, social care and preventative services in the Borough.

Joint Strategic Needs Assessment

Rochdale JSNA 2016

Rochdale Borough Health and Wellbeing Board made the decision to refresh our JSNA for 2015, to inform a new Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy for 2016-18. This strategy has been superseded by the HMR Locality Plan as part of the Greater Manchester Devolution of Health and Social Care. However data from the JSNA still underpins this strategy which describes how we will design and deliver clinically and financially sustainable health and care services across the borough, raise ambition for good health and wellbeing, change understanding of services, and involve all our residents in becoming stakeholders in the plan. You can find the latest documents relating to this JSNA below:
