The aim of the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is to identify the health and social care needs of the local population in order to support local organisations to plan, commission and deliver services and to ensure that local services best meet the needs of local residents.

In St Helens, there are wide differences between wards in both health and wellbeing measures and indicators of the wider determinants of health. This St Helens Joint Strategic Needs Assessment 2020 – Inequalities highlights some of the significant inequalities experienced both within St Helens and compared to the rest of England.

The JSNA 2020 – Inequalities report can also be found via the menu and the Assessments & Reports section.
