What is a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment?


The joint strategic needs assessment (JSNA) describes the current and emerging health and wellbeing needs for people who live in York.

The JSNA is the responsibility of the York Health and Wellbeing Board.

The main purpose of the JSNA is to support the York Health and Wellbeing Strategy.



Director of Public Health's Annual Report 2017-2018

It is a real pleasure to introduce the Director for Public Health’s annual report, covering 2017/18.


This year we have placed an emphasis on encouraging people to talk about health, including what is needed to help people to live healthier lives and some inspiring stories of how people's live have changed after accessing support.

We were really keen to hear from people what good health meant to them so we decided to produce a short film highlighting the state of the health of the population in York, and what is being done to improve this.

The film focuses on the issues of alcohol, childhood obesity, physical activity and mental health. We know that these present challenges for our residents, but I hope that the video provides encouragement about how some of our residents are taking their health into their own hands and tackling these issues.

I would like to thank all those involved, especially the residents who spoke so openly and honestly about their health journeys and spared the time to contribute to this video.

We hope you find it informative and interesting, if you have any thoughts we would love to hear from you.
