Wider determinants of health JSNA


Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) identifies key issues affecting the health and wellbeing of our residents, both now and in the future.

​Your overall health is determined by more than just the availability and quality of health services in your local area. It’s a mixture of individual, environmental and social factors.

We call the environmental and social factors which contribute to your overall health 'wider determinants of health'. Examples of wider determinants include:

  • Housing quality
  • Air quality
  • Road accidents
  • Crime
  • Antisocial behaviour

The Wider Determinants of Health summary part of the JSNA highlights the key issues, outcomes and measures related to the environmental and social determinants of health.

It includes sections on:

  • Housing
  • Environment
  • Transport
  • Community safety
  • Economy
