Public Health - Joint Strategic Needs Assessment


Introduction to the JSNA

Welcome to the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) for Bradford District. The JSNA identifies the health and wellbeing needs of the local population and aims to support the development of services which reduce inequalities.

The JSNA is made up of a number of chapters, each of which include sub-sections which describe areas of need in detail. By using the headings below you will be able to locate each sub-section. The JSNA has been compiled using a "living document" approach, meaning that updates and new contributions can be made at any time.

The JSNA links in with various plans and strategies across the district, including the Bradford District Partnership, the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy and the Health Inequalities Action Plan. Links to all these can be found under the Related Pages section on the right of this page.

Other Health Needs Assessments which support the various JSNA sections, including Needs Assessments covering areas such as Mental Health, the Central Eastern European Population of Bradford and Children with Disabilities and Special Education Needs are available at the Health Needs Assessments page.
