JSNA overview

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) for the Isle of Wight provides or informs:

  • a picture of the current and future health and wellbeing needs of Isle of Wight residents
  • decisions about how we design, commission and deliver services
  • an evidence base for the Joint Health and Wellbeing strategy

In addition to the information on our local JSNA, there is a lot of useful information and statistics available in the Public Health Outcomes Framework (PHOF) for the Isle of Wight. You can also view the PHOF at a glance summary.

The JSNA is an on-going process, involving partner organisations, the voluntary sector and wider community whose work affects people’s health and wellbeing. It is available online to help ensure that information about health and wellbeing on the Island is easily accessible to all of these groups. It helps to inform and improve decision-making and prioritisation at all levels. We are always reviewing the way we make the information in the JSNA available. Including trying to make best use of new technologies. If you wish to provide any feedback email data@iow.gov.uk.

The JSNA supports the Health and Wellbeing Board to develop a Health and Wellbeing Strategy for the Island based on the needs of residents. It plans what services and activities are required to address the needs.
