A Picture of Wellbeing

Joint Strategic Needs Assessment 2012/16
Introduction and Summary

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is a statutory duty which currently rests on the Local Authority and the Primary Care Trust (PCT) but from April 2013 it will become the responsibility of the Health and Wellbeing Board.

Trafford's JSNA considers all current and future health and social care needs which are capable of being met or influenced to a significant extent by the Local Authority and the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). It aims to provide a comprehensive 'picture of place' including inequalities and gaps in provision. It will be used as evidence to inform decisions about commissioning services and action to be taken by the local authority and CCG. It will form the evidence base for Trafford's Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy.

Trafford's JSNA has taken a life cycle approach – looking at the needs of local people from pregnancy and birth to old age and end of life, and it has also considered the needs of vulnerable groups such as the disabled. It has considered not only health related issues such as lifestyle and long term conditions but wider issues which may impact on health, including housing and employment.

This document describes the initial summary findings of the JSNA and will be the focus for further discussions across the borough to inform the refreshed Trafford health and well being strategy.

We have tried to paint a comprehensive picture for Trafford and cover the main issues. We have also highlighted those local areas where needs are greatest – there are no shocks in this. Alongside this JSNA will be a Joint Assets Assessment recognising that we need to build on the assets of different areas in Trafford rather than focus just on the gaps. Using the asset based approach we hope to reduce inequalities in Trafford.

The JSNA is a living document and will continue to be updated as more detailed work and more engagement with local people takes place. The information will be available to all interested parties here, on InfoTrafford.

**JSNA 2014 updates include areas of Pregnancy and Birth, of Children and of Young People**
