There have been a lot of changes in Croydon’s health and social care services over the past three years, part of these changes were the new plans for Integrated Care Networks (ICN’s) which essentially help to ensure that services across health and social care disciplines speak to each other and are easier for Croydon residents to navigate.

Joint Strategic Needs Assessment
The purpose of the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment is to improve the health and wellbeing of the local community and reduce inequalities for all ages. JSNAs assess the current and future health and social care needs of the local community. These are needs that could be met by the local authority, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), the wider NHS or the voluntary and community sector. This analysis of needs is 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.
The JSNA is the responsibility of the health and wellbeing board. The board is made up of representatives from the Clinical Commissioning Group, the local authority, the health services, other statutory bodies, community and voluntary groups.
