A DOCUMENT that describes the future health and well-being needs of Lincolnshire has been published.

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) 2011 Overview Report has been approved following a consultation period and will now form the basis of the health and well-being strategy for Lincolnshire.

The information within the JSNA is based on research around lifestyle choice, social networks and living and working conditions.

NHS Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire County Council will use the data to shape future services for priority areas.

Dr Tony Hill, Joint Director of Public Health for Lincolnshire said: “The final JSNA Overview Report has been approved and sets out current and future health needs for the county.

“The data provides a useful and comprehensive resource for decision makers in Lincolnshire and can be viewed on the Lincolnshire Research Observatory website.”
