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, and are assessed using a matrix tool. The working group  welcome suggestions for new projects. Please send all suggestions to healthandwellbeing@york.gov.uk 

All projects will go to the York Health and Wellbeing Board Steering Group for approval before the projects begin.
