West Berkshire Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)

A Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) looks at the current and future health and care needs of local populations to inform and guide the planning and commissioning (buying) of health, well-being and social care services within a local authority area.

The West Berkshire Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is used to assess the needs of the local population. It highlights the key requirements of the borough and assesses how we might best meet these needs with a range of partners.

Health and Wellbeing Strategy

West Berkshire makes up over half of the geographical area in Berkshire, covering an area of 272 square miles. Largely rural, it has the most dispersed population in the South East. West Berkshire residents have good health overall but an increasing demand for health and social care services, at a time of downward pressure on NHS and local authority budgets, means that the NHS, local authorities and their partners have to consider new ways of working to deliver the outcomes that people need.

Health and social care integration

The Better Care Fund (BCF) is a programme spanning both the NHS and local government which seeks to join-up health and care services, so that people can manage their own health and wellbeing, and live independently in their communities for as long as possible.
West Berkshire’s vision for better care is based on improving outcomes for individuals through the joint delivery of care which is responsive, enabling and available as close to home as possible. This plan covers two years, from 2017 to 2019.

Newbury GP Alliance

Due to the size of many practices in the Newbury and District area, GPs and practices need to work together to achieve a sustainable model of General Practice.

All practices in the Newbury and District area have signed-up to the GP Alliance as the vehicle to deliver these aims of maintaining sustainability and transformation of local primary healthcare.
