The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is the statutory responsibility of the health and wellbeing board. The board is made up of representatives from the Clinical Commissioning Group, the local authority, the health services, other statutory bodies, community and voluntary groups.

The purpose of the JSNA is to assess the current and future health and social care needs of the local community, and make recommendations on how to improve health and wellbeing and reduce inequalities for all ages.

JSNAs are produced jointly by Croydon Council and other major local partner organisations and recommendations contained within them can be used to help determine what actions any or all of the local partners working across Croydon could do to meet health and social care needs and address the wider determinants that impact on health and wellbeing.

The Croydon JSNA is made up of three parts. An annual key dataset, a number of detailed needs assessments on key topic areas and some less detailed statistical bulletins.

All data presented here was accurate at the time of publication, there may be more recent data now available.
