Stockton JSNA

Stockton

This Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) summarises the efforts of many people through a range of different mechanisms to identify, define, and address the wider health and well-being needs of the people of Stockton Borough. The work we do in partnership is guided by plans, strategies, and policies that have been developed after needs assessment, data analysis and research, and through consultation with professionals and residents across the area. These include, but are not limited to, the Sustainable Community Strategy, the Adult Vision, the Children and Young People’s Plan, the regional health and well being strategy ‘Better Health Fairer Health’, and many others that include or are based on rigorous needs assessment.

The purpose of this Joint Strategic Needs Assessment is to bring together in one place the information that this rich resource provides, backed up by a technical compilation of statistics, data, and analysis. This will enable the widest spectrum of partners to have the intelligence they need to ensure commissioning strategies work together for better provision of services for those areas of greatest need. We hope you will find this document useful.
