Every local area must have a Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy setting out the priorities identified through the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) that local government, the NHS and other partners will deliver together through the Health and Wellbeing Board. The JHWS is intended to set ‘a small number of key strategic priorities for action’, where there is an opportunity for partners working through the Health and Wellbeing Board to ‘have a real impact’ through local initiatives and action and leading to an improvement in health and wellbeing outcomes and a reduction in health inequalities. The JHWS is jointly owned by partners through the Essex Health and Wellbeing Board, the District, Borough and City Councils’ HWB Partnership Boards, the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, Safeguarding Boards and the voluntary and community sector.
