Joint Strategic Needs Assessments

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is a process that identifies the current and future health and wellbeing needs of a local population.

The dashboards below show information about the employment, health, and wellbeing of people in Doncaster. We use this information to inform our policies and strategies to improve the lives of everyone in the Doncaster area.

Doncaster’s JSNA is part of the work programme of the Health and Wellbeing Board. JSNA reports are used by the Board to identify priorities for action, and to inform the writing of the local Health and Wellbeing Strategy.

The Health and Social Care Act 2012 moved responsibility for the production of the JSNA from the Primary Care Trust (PCT) to the local authority. The reports, nevertheless, remain a collaboration between the NHS, local authority and other interested parties.

The JSNA is produced by the Doncaster Data Observatory.


 Dementia Health Needs Assessment

This assessment forms part of the JSNA 2013/14. It describes the epidemiology of dementia in Doncaster, the demand on local services and a projection of these figures in the future. This data is also presented alongside service user and stakeholder voices. The assessment collates local intelligence so that partners can coordinate and prioritise work on dementia. Primarily it provides a basis for the Doncaster Dementia Alliance to introduce or improve services for people with dementia and their carers. Please click the link below to open the document:

Children and Young People's Needs Assessment (CYPNA)

The Children and Young People’s Needs Assessment (CYPNA) is a collection of data and analysis designed to support and inform the work of the partnership with regard to children and young people. It brings information together from a wide range of areas to provide a broad assessment of needs in Doncaster.

Mental Health in Doncaster: The Perspective of the Voluntary Sector

This document contributes to the JSNA 2012/13. The report summarises a pilot that sought to engage the voluntary and community sector and gather their knowledge and experience. This sector is of particular interest as these groups present valuable assets through their role as advocates of vulnerable and seldom heard groups. The pilot specifically focused on mental health as this topic lacks numerical data to describe the true underlying issues. This type of work will continue to be developed in future JSNAs.
