Kirklees Joint Strategic Assessment
Local authorities and clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) have a responsibility to develop Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNAs) and Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategies (JHWSs), on behalf of the Health and Wellbeing Board. Our JSNA was rebranded as the Kirklees Joint Strategic Assessment (KJSA) to reflect a shift in focus towards health assets (those things that help people and communities to maintain and sustain their health and wellbeing).
Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic has been the priority since March 2020, and as a result much of the content of the KJSA has become out of date. Under the guidance of the Health and Wellbeing Board, a KJSA Steering Group is currently planning and developing a new, improved KJSA. Previous KJSA content has been archived and is available here. Access to a limited number of sections is also provided in the grey menu bar to the left.
As a temporary measure, we have created a ‘Picture of health’ page and embedded the health intelligence pack produced by the Office for Health Improvements and Disparities (OHID). The profile provides an up-to-date picture of the health and wellbeing of people in Kirklees and across the region and may be used to inform the commissioning strategies and plans of Kirklees CCG, Kirklees Council and the local voluntary and community sector.
How to use this information
This profile covers the whole of the Yorkshire and Humber region but can be filtered by Local Authority. It also includes a Local Authority variation summary. The profile is grouped into the following themes:
- Regional Overview explores health inequalities, population, mortality, vulnerable groups and the wider determinants of health.
- Starting Well explores children and young people’s health.
- Living Well explores working age and all age indicators.
- Ageing Well explores health in ages 65+.
- From the front page, click the arrows next to any of the images.
- From all other pages, step forwards or backwards using the arrows at the bottom of the page or select a section by clicking on the slide number between the directional arrows.
- The button at the bottom right of the screen (diagonal line with arrows) will launch the profile in full-screen mode.
