What is a topic specific needs assessment?

A topic specific needs assessment considers a health topic or population group in significant detail.

Needs assessments give an indeapth detailed picture of one element of health and wellbeing in York. This can be informative when a health and wellbeing issue is thought to be rapidly changing, is not well understood, or not well reported in York.


How are the topics selected?

Topics are considered in response to the level of local need.

The first stage to suggesting a topic is to contact the JSNA working group. The working group will welcome suggestions from all organsations working in York. Send an email to healthandwellbeing@york.gov.uk  Please put 'request for topic specific needs assessment' in the subject line of your email.

All of the topic specific needs assessments are approved by the York Health and Wellbeing Board Steering Group before the projects begin.
