JSNA and outcomes focussed commissioning
The North West Joint Improvement Partnership and the Department of Health have funded ‘Measuring Demand - Making Decisions: A briefing paper exploring the relationship between commissioning and Joint Strategic Needs Assessment'.
This paper explores the extent to which JSNAs have fulfilled their role of producing a statement of need which could drive commissioning across local government, the NHS and other local partners. It highlights good practice, and lessons on how to ensure that JSNAs guide commissioning decisions.
