According to NHS guidance, the JSNA is “a systematic method for reviewing the health and wellbeing needs of a population, leading to agreed commissioning priorities that will improve health and wellbeing outcomes and reduce inequalities.” This document “identifies ‘the big picture’ in terms of the health and wellbeing needs and inequalities of a local population.”
Local authorities and health commissioners thus have a duty to review the health and wellbeing needs of their local population and to use this information to influence the services they provide and future commissioning.
The council would like to meet parents/carers of children and young people with SEND to hear your views on their commissioning priorities. What would improve our children’s health & wellbeing? What would reduce inequalities for our children and young people with SEND?
