New ‘health and wellbeing’ website for Hackney and City of London

A new website has been launched giving information about the health and wellbeing needs of residents in Hackney and City of London to make it easier to commission services to address current and future health needs of the local population.

The new website has been set up to improve online access to information published by the Public Health Intelligence Team, which provides a ‘Health and Wellbeing Profile’ of Hackney and the City of London.

The ‘Health and Wellbeing Profile’ is also known as a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) which presents evidence on what are the key needs of the local population. Hackney and City of London’s Health and Wellbeing Boards has a statutory duty to publish a local Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA).

The JSNA contains information about mental health and substance misuse in children and young people, lifestyle and behaviour of residents, stroke needs, learning disability needs and other health and lifestyle related information about residents in Hackney and the City of London.

The information contained within the JSNA is used for different purposes, including setting the strategic direction of the Health and Wellbeing Boards, informing funding bids for voluntary sector organisations, commissioning services to meet the needs of local people, and monitoring the performance of services in meeting those needs.

The new website will give senior leaders from the NHS, the local authorities, Healthwatch and the voluntary and community sector easier access to information so they can work together more effectively to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Hackney and City of London and reduce health inequalities.

Dr Penny Bevan, Director of Public Health, said: “I hope that everyone finds this new website an accurate and easy to use way to find reliable and clearly laid out information on health and wellbeing needs and opportunities locally.

“It is designed to be used by everyone, to check a fact, provide data for a presentation or a bid or to understand current trends and figures.”

The new site enables users to search and filter content to what they are interested in and receive information relevant to them. Some sections are available in an interactive format where users can search and filter content, whilst some content is available to download for people interested in specific topics.

The new website is just one step to develop the JSNA into a user friendly public health information tool for residents to access across Hackney and the City of London.
