Kirklees Joint Strategic Assessment
Local authorities and clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) have to develop Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNAs) and Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategies (JHWSs), on behalf of the Health and Wellbeing Board.
Our new KJSA provides a picture of the health and wellbeing of Kirklees people and is used to inform the commissioning strategies and plans of Kirklees CCG, council and the local voluntary and community sector. It includes information about health needs and assets.
Health assets help people and communities to maintain and sustain their health and well-being, such as skills, knowledge, their networks and connections and community spaces, for example parks.
How to use this information
The KJSA site is split up into sections. Each section under the four main headings uses a life course approach to explain who is affected and where and outlines what actions commissioners and service planners can consider.
- Wider factors explores home, community and economic factors.
- Behaviours explores health behaviours.
- People and life events explores specific groups and life transitions.
- Conditions explores common health conditions and diseases.
Useful summaries, supporting information and resources can be found via the links in the grey box.
