Wokingham 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 Wokingham Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is used to assess the needs of Wokingham’s population. It highlights the key requirements of the borough and assesses how we might best meet these needs with a range of partners. Information about Wokingham’s JSNA is available here

Wokingham’s Health Profile

Wokingham’s Health Profile is available here. It contains information about the health of people in Wokingham as well as health inequalities and local priorities.

Health and Wellbeing Strategy

Wokingham is a prosperous place, 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. You can view Wokingham’s Health and Well Being Strategy Action Plan here.

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.
Our approach to integration focuses on:

  • Supporting Wokingham residents in only telling their story once.
  • Working on keeping people at their usual place of residence
  • Shifting traditional hospital provided care delivery into the community.

Our integration programme is centred around the service users’ journey, as illustrated in ‘Sam’s Story’.
The third Better Care Fund (BCF) plan, follows on from the 2014 and 2016 plans. This plan covers two years, from 2017 to 2019

Involve Community Navigators support people to engage in self-care, independence and well-being across Wokingham.

Wokingham GP Alliance

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

All practices in the Wokingham area have signed-up to the GP Alliance as the vehicle to deliver these aims of maintaining sustainability and transformation of local primary healthcare. Further information is available on their website: 
The Wokingham GP Alliance 2017/18 strategy is available here.
