5 Policy - JSNA /JHWS The purpose of JSNAs and JHWSs is to improve the health and wellbeing of the local community and reduce inequalities for all ages. They are not an end in themselves, but a continuous process of strategic assessment and planning – the core aim is to develop local evidence-based priorities for commissioning which will improve the public’s health and reduce inequalities. Their outputs, in the form of evidence and the analysis of needs, and agreed priorities, will be used to help to determine what actions local authorities, the local NHS and other partners need to take to meet health and social care needs, and to address the wider determinants that impact on health and wellbeing. 5Health equity north

6 Who is responsible for JSNA / JHWS Local authorities and clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) have equal and joint duties to prepare JSNAs and JHWSs, through the health and wellbeing board. The responsibility falls on the health and wellbeing board as a whole and so success will depend upon all members working together throughout the process. Success will not be achieved if a few members of the board assume ownership, or conversely do not bring their area of expertise and knowledge to the process. As the duties apply across the health and wellbeing board as a whole, boards will need to discuss and agree their own arrangements for signing off the process and outputs. 6Health equity north

7 Policy - JSNA & VCS Health and wellbeing boards may find that there is a lack of evidence about some issues, and some seldom heard and vulnerable groups, which could be indicative of unmet needs and deprivation. Local partners such as voluntary sector organisations or local Healthwatch may be able to help where such evidence is lacking as they are well-placed to collect both quantitative and qualitative evidence and have good specialist knowledge of the community. They can also help boards to directly engage with some of these seldom heard and vulnerable groups. 7Presentation title - edit in Header and Footer

9 HWB Boards – one year on review Both the health and well being environment and ‘business’ are complex and risky The ‘enormity’ of task for HWBs Tensions perceived between need to drive big change now - such as integration and transformation - vs. longer term priority issues around, for e.g., health inequalities Expectations have both grown and shifted during the period since inception e.g. expectations around role in integration of health and social care and transformation agendas HWBs are still immature in development terms HWB ‘levers’ are mainly those of persuasion and growing influence rather than immediate directive ‘powers’ HWBs are part of the democratic, legal and cultural environment of local government and all opportunities/ challenges that brings 9Presentation title - edit in Header and Footer

10 VCS & HWB Boards Have you got a place a the table? Is your place at the table being used effectively? How could this be supported Are you facilitating the evidence available to you in the most effective way to support the setting of priorities, driving change an monitoring progress? how can you support the board to give due weight to qualitative evidence such as the personal stories of board members and the user, patient, carer and community voice? 10Presentation title - edit in Header and Footer
