The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) reports on the health and wellbeing needs of the people of Bristol. It brings together detailed information on local health and wellbeing needs and looks ahead at emerging challenges and projected future needs. The JSNA is an on-going, iterative process, led by Public Health and involving Bristol City Council (Children and Adult services), NHS Bristol Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), HealthWatch, the Voluntary and Community Sector and other partners.
The JSNA, since the initial Baseline Report in 2008, has been developed through further update reports and the addition of an online tool, Instant Atlas. This allows people to access updated JSNA data at a local level. The JSNA 2012 Baseline was developed as a full refresh of information, re-modelled to reflect changing needs and new stakeholders.
During 2013 the JSNA has supported work on specific priority areas and informing the council and partners on the wider health and wellbeing of the city. We are also developing a new JSNA summary report, an electronic version of the JSNA, and enhanced on-line data-sets for Spring 2014. The underlying data on a range of JSNA indicators continues to be available via the Instant Atlas tool.
- To provide a comprehensive picture of the health and wellbeing needs of Bristol (now and in the future).
- To inform decisions about how we design, commission and deliver services, and also about how the urban environment is planned and managed.
- To improve and protect health and wellbeing outcomes across the city while reducing health inequalities.
- To provide partner organisations with information on the changing health and wellbeing needs of Bristol, at a local level, to support better service delivery.
- As the evidence base for the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy, identifying important health and wellbeing issues for Bristol, and supporting the development of action plans for the 10 priorities named in the strategy.
JSNA Instant Atlas Tool
This service displays updated health and wellbeing indicators as a map for different local areas (eg ward level). It is also developed data based on GP practice registers. You are able to choose specific information by topic and how it's displayed.

JSNA data provides the basis of the Healthy and Caring Bristol section in the State of the City, 2013. It provides a snapshot of some key data and evidence for each theme of the mayor’s priorities for the city, drawn from a range of sources such as the Population of Bristol 2013 report, Joint Strategic Needs Assessment 2013 updates, the Local Economic Partnership, Joint Local Transport Plan, Quality of Life in Bristol 2013 and the Crime and Disorder Strategic Needs Assessment 2013.
At a more detailed level, ward-based JSNA data is included in the new Neighbourhood Partnership Statistical Profiles (Nov 2013).
