The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) constitutes a crucial part of the planning phase of the commissioning process.
Local communities and 'not for profit' providers possess extensive intelligence to feed into the JSNA but traditionally have been unable to do so due to limitations of time and resources.
We offer a dedicated service to develop an event or consultation process in conjunction with commissioners to help providers feed their intelligence into a specific area of the JSNA.
