We produce a number of health needs assessments. These are the means by which we assess the current and future health, care and wellbeing needs of the local population.

Health needs assessments are used to develop and evaluate Sheffield’s joint health and wellbeing strategy.

Joint Strategic Needs Assessment

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) provides over-arching information on the current and future health and wellbeing needs of Sheffield people. It provides the evidence base for the joint health and wellbeing strategy and the context for all other health needs assessment for the City.

It also contains:

  • other health needs assessments
  • health and wellbeing data for Sheffield's wards and neighbourhoods
  • annual Director of Public Health reports

Chapters include:

  • population
  • communities of interest
  • economic, social and environmental impact on health 
  • maternal, child and young people's health
  • disease and disability
  • commercial determinants of health

Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment

The Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) sets out our assessment of the extent to which the community-based pharmaceutical services in Sheffield meet the health and wellbeing needs of the population.

The PNA covers the period 2018-21 and is produced in accordance with the National Health Service (Pharmaceutical Services and Local Pharmaceutical Services) Regulations 2013.
