What is a JSNA?
A JSNA is a shared evidence base on key areas of health and wellbeing in Hull and the characteristics of Hull’s population. It contains data, reports and summary information on health, wellbeing and some of the wider causes of our health and wellbeing. It also features information on the city’s population and their characteristics as well as information on inequalities.
Who is the JSNA for?
The JSNA is for anyone with an interest (professional or personal) in the health, wellbeing and population factors affecting Hull. The information can be used to support funding bids, help make service commissioning decisions, aid research work and help anyone interested in the health and wellbeing in Hull as well as the wider determinants affecting health and wellbeing.
Who produces the JSNA?
The JSNA website is updated by Hull City Council’s Public Health Intelligence team with collaboration with a wide range of partners.
In July 2022, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) ceased to exist and were replaced by the Integrated Care System. Local authorities and CCGs (and now its successor) have a statutory duty with equal and joint duties to prepare JSNAs through the Health and Wellbeing Board.
Where does the information come from?
A wide range of sources are used to update the information within the JSNA. These include information from national sources such as from the Office for National Improvement & Disparities (previously Public Health England) and their public health data on Fingertips, the Office for National Statistics, Police Data, and a range of data on government websites. Local data is also used in the production of the JSNA and these include service data and other information from colleagues from Hull City Council and information from Hull’s Health and Wellbeing Surveys which have been conducted by the Public Health Intelligence team over a number of years.
Hull’s JSNA is entirely online with information exclusively on this website. Each topic area is on a separate website page, but there is a summary document which provides an overview – JSNA Key Points.
