Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)

The JSNA is a report which shows the the health and wellbeing of the people living and working in Ealing.  It analyses detailed information about our local population from commonly used sources like the Census, health surveys, and service-based information and compares it with intelligence from a variety of community sources. This helps to create a picture of the current (and future) local health needs and identifies health inequalities and gaps in service.

All the available JSNA chapters are listed below. The year of publication is included in the title of each chapter once you expand the section header. Other related documents and resources are:

What does “health inequalities” mean?

Health inequalities are the differences in health status between people or communities.  This is usually measured through lifespan, the presence of disease and other instances of ill-health which could be explained by differences in living and working conditions, education, income or access to quality health care and disease prevention.

Many of these factors are largely beyond individual control and can be addressed through public policy. This is why the JSNA plays an important role in planning and prioritising future services.  The JSNA is used to:

  • provide a comprehensive picture of the health and wellbeing needs of Ealing (now and in the future)
  • assist the council and our partners design, commission and deliver services
  • help reducing health inequalities between communities
  • support better service delivery across all
  • give an evidence base for the Ealing’s Health and Wellbeing Strategy, which sets the top health priorities for the borough (managed through the Health and Wellbeing Board).
