Public Engagement

Having your say on the JSNA

Involvement from the people that use existing health and social services is essential to the development of a comprehensive JSNA.

Though the JSNA can appear to be quite a dry subject it is used to inform important decisions about where money is spent on health and social care services now and in the future.

You can give your views in the following ways:

  • Using the online feedback form linked to this site
  • Giving comments over the phone
  • Providing your comments in writing

How local views will inform the 2010 JSNA

Through the engagement work we’re doing we want to find out what local people think the priorities for health and social care services should be.

The information local people provide is taken into account alongside an assessment of existing services to identify whether there is evidence to suggest a more effective and efficient way of working.

How views are used

The JSNA is a ‘living document’ by which we mean that it is continually being re-visited and reviewed to ensure it accurately reflects the current needs of the local population.

A grid showing the feedback we have had from local people and community groups during the 2010 refresh of the JSNA is available to view below.

This PDF identifies the feedback we have had and actions that have been taken as a result:
