Needs of the local population
The Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNA) look at the health and well-being needs of people living in the borough and help to plan health and social care services. Local authorities and the Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are responsible for producing JSNAs.
Many other partners are involved in the process including:
- service providers
- voluntary organisations
- bodies representing patients and service users.
JSNAs provide a detailed picture of the needs of the local population so that services can be developed to address the needs. So it's important to keep up-to-date with:
- the constantly changing health and social challenges
- the opportunities for those living, working, and visiting Harrow.
The Harrow JSNA online web-based tool allows us to pass on the most up-to-date information to our stakeholders. It provides specific details covering the life-course. Each section gives an assessment of the current and future needs of the population of Harrow.
