Below are links to some of the key documents that will support your involvement in the procurement perhaps the most important of these are the Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNA) from around the county.
The JSNA is an ongoing process run by Local Authorities, the NHS and other public sector partners to jointly describe the current and future health and wellbeing needs of its local population. It enables priorities for action to be identified to achieve better local health and wellbeing outcomes and reduce health inequalities when services are being planned and delivered.
Decisions about the needs of children and young people have also been influenced by engagement with their parents. carers and themselves.
We know from our engagement with children, young people and their parents/carers that services currently provided are not as integrated as they could be. Our engagement feedback report is now available and a link to this can be found below.
