A joint strategic needs assessment brings together the council, community and voluntary sector service users and NHS partners.
Together we can research and agree local health and wellbeing needs. It also supports and encourages organisations to work together when developing services.
Our joint strategic needs assessment looks at what we know about the people of North Yorkshire and their current and future health and wellbeing needs. It does not look at the particular needs of individual people; it looks at the 'big picture' of people's needs in North Yorkshire and where needs are not being met as well as they could be. It sets out to answer the following:
- What do people need?
- What are we doing already?
- Is it working?
- Are there things we should be doing but are not? and
- Are we targeting services properly?
