Joint Strategic Needs Assessment support

Tobacco joint strategic needs assessment  support pack

As part of their public health remit, local authorities are responsible for commissioning comprehensive tobacco control interventions. This joint strategic needs assessment (JSNA) support pack – updated annually and in its third year - will help local areas to develop JSNAs and local joint health and wellbeing strategies, which effectively address public health issues relating to tobacco use.

Alcohol and drugs joint strategic needs assessment support pack

As part of their public health remit, local authorities are responsible for commissioning alcohol and drug interventions and services. This joint strategic needs assessment (JSNA) support pack – updated annually and in its fifth year – will help local areas to develop JSNAs and local joint health and wellbeing strategies, which effectively address public health issues relating to alcohol, and drug use.

The pack covers three topics:

1. Alcohol harm prevention, treatment and recovery for adults

2. Drug prevention, treatment and recovery for adults

3. Young people’s alcohol and drug use.

For each of these topics, there are two documents:

1. A series of good practice evidence-based prompts to help local areas assess need, plan and commission effective services and interventions

2. Key data for each local area to help them commission effective prevention, treatment and recovery services and interventions.

The support pack documents can be downloaded below. The data packs here are examples without data. Local areas will be sent their tailored data packs. Copies of the alcohol, drug and young people’s data packs can also be downloaded from ndtms.net (report viewer) from the end of October 2016. Queries should be sent to evidenceapplicationteam@phe.gov.uk.

Value for money

An updated Commissioning Tool containing data from 2015/16 will be published later this year. The Tool will comprise an improved Cost Calculator and Cost Effectiveness Analysis (CEA) to support areas in estimating local spend on treatment interventions and cost-effectiveness.

We will also be releasing the 2015/16 Social Return on Investment (SROI) Tool. Focusing on SROI can help local authorities make informed decisions about how to spend their money effectively on services that improve lives, opportunities, health and wellbeing.

The current alcohol and drug treatment value for money products are listed below. These can all be accessed via: www.ndtms.net/ValueForMoney.aspx

PHE produces several tools to help commissioners understand and inform their spending. Different tools are useful for different purposes and it’s important to know which one to use to get the most out of them. This factsheet summarises the differences between the SPOT and the Commissioning Tool.
