2008 JSNA Report (Version 1, for the period 2008/2009)
A Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is the means by which the Primary Care Trust (PCT) and local authorities work together to understand the future health, care and well-being needs of their community. This understanding is critical to ensure that services meet the needs of the local population. The knowledge this yields underpins the evidence-based strategic plans that PCTs and local authorities are required to produce. It also informs the Local Area Agreement (LAA) targets and priorities and the Delivery Plan for the Sustainable Community Strategy (Oxfordshire 2030) for the next 3 to 5 years.
