Minutes:

Councillor Keith Humphries, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Public Protection, introduced the report which updated the committee on the production of Wiltshire’s Joint Strategic Assessment (JSA) for Health and Wellbeing 2012/13.  This report formed part of the wider JSA programme which is the mechanism of understanding Wiltshire’s local population through the assessment of intelligence and information.  Councillor Humphries noted that the JSA document had been circulated with the agenda, and that further detailed information was available on the www.intelligencenetwork.org.uk  website.

 

In relation to life expectancy, it was noted that the gap between men and women in Wiltshire was one of the lowest in the country, and this had remained low, even with population growth.

 

The Corporate Director for Public Health and Public Protection also confirmed that it was planned to produce JSAs for individual community areas, and that the Area Board Chairs would be consulted on the timescales for this.

 

Resolved:

 

That Cabinet notes the production of the 2012/13 JSA report and supporting documents and endorses its use in commissioning and strategy preparation, including the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy.

 

Reasons for Decision

 

The JSA programme is the mechanism of understanding our local population through the assessment of intelligence and information.

 

Our strategies and plans need to be evidenced based, our evidence base is the JSA programme.  This JSA provides the evidence base for all health and wellbeing related strategies and plans.
