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 inform and challenge Sheffield’s Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy.

Joint Strategic Needs Assessment

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) provides an over-arching assessment of the current and future health and wellbeing needs of Sheffield people. It provides an evidence base for the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy and the context for all other health needs assessments for the City.

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 2015-18 and is produced in accordance with the National Health Service (Pharmaceutical Services and Local Pharmaceutical Services) Regulations 2013. 

Other health needs assessments

As part of our JSNA we identified a number of topics where we needed to undertake more detailed assessment of health and wellbeing needs.

These ‘Health Needs Assessments’ (HNAs) supplement the evidence set out in our JSNA and will be published on this page when completed.
