Joint strategic needs assessment template for eye health

The UK Vision Strategy has published a joint strategic needs assessment (JSNA) template for health and wellbeing boards. The template will help boards to understand the eye health needs of their local populations and support effective commissioning of services.

The template covers the four main causes of sight loss, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), glaucoma, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy.

The template outlines the relationship between eye health, sight loss and other health determinants and shows how prioritising these issues and conditions can help to meet locally identified strategic priorities, support service planning and improve service efficiency.
