Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)
Client: Bury Council
Faced with a challenging agenda and an ever stretched budget of funding, Bury MBC was keen to become an “early implementer” in order to realise the significant benefits of conducting a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment. Bury worked in conjunction with CPC to develop the delivery methodology and has delivered an LSP-wide JSNA, designed to deliver a host of positive outcomes outlined in the white paper ‘Our Health, Our Care, Our Say: a new direction for community services’.
This work was designed to support intelligence-led commissioning and whole systems redesign of the support and care services available to the people of Bury. It engaged with all the major agencies from within the borough that commissioned and provided these types of services and sought to: reinvest significant efficiency savings; and provide a more co-ordinated approach to support and care across the borough.
CPC was tasked with the following:
- Project-manage the process from start to finish
- Conduct detailed analysis
- Liaise with all areas of the public sector agencies council to ensure the project is delivered on time to the required standard of quality
- Provide unbiased guidance and analytical clarity
- Deliver an independent view of need and service delivery across multiple agencies
