This Summary of Themed JSNA Reports for 2017 provides a brief overview and update on the entire breadth of the JSNA work in Cambridgeshire to date, along with a description of the latest key population and health statistics for the county. It is designed to identify and flag key pieces of information about the health and wellbeing needs of people who live in Cambridgeshire, and local inequalities in health for specific population groups. Based on this breadth of work, the report includes a summary of the key health and wellbeing needs in the county and informs the county-wide Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
The purpose of the JSNA is to identify local needs and views to support local strategy development and service planning. In order to understand whether we are achieving good health and care outcomes locally, it is useful to benchmark outcomes in Cambridgeshire against those in other areas.
The JSNA is becoming increasingly important as a shared resource, through which different organisations can understand the health and wellbeing needs of communities in Cambridgeshire. It provides an information base for the Cambridgeshire Health and Wellbeing Board and Network.
