JSNA - Overview


Welcome to the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) for the Isle of Wight


  • Provides a comprehensive picture of the current and future health and wellbeing needs of Isle of Wight residents.
  • Informs decisions about how we design, commission and deliver services.
  • Provides an evidence base for the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy.

The JSNA paints a picture of local needs so everyone can work together to improve lives for the residents of the Isle of Wight.

In addition to the locally published JSNA, there is a lot of useful information and statistics available in the Public Health Outcomes Framework for the Isle of Wight which can be viewed on the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID) Fingertips website. You can also view the  "At a glance" summary document.


The JSNA is an on-going, iterative process, involving partner organisations, the voluntary sector and wider community whose work affects people’s health and wellbeing. It is available online to help ensure that information about health and wellbeing on the Island is easily accessible to all of these groups. It helps to inform and improve decision-making and prioritisation at all levels.  We are always reviewing the way we make the information in the JSNA available. Including trying to make best use of new technologies. If you wish to provide any feedback please email

The JSNA supports the Health and Wellbeing Board to develop an over-arching Health and Wellbeing Strategy for the Island based on the needs of residents. The strategy responds to the needs and priorities identified. It plans what services and activities are required to address them.
