Welcome to the Hackney and the City of London Health and Wellbeing Profiles website. This website brings together data and evidence that help to develop local priorities for policy, strategy and commissioning with an aim of improving residents’ health and reducing inequalities.

Most of the evidence here is gathered through the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) process. The JSNA is an ongoing process which helps to identify the health and wellbeing needs of the local population. It is a statutory requirement to conduct the JSNA and local authorities, the NHS, other core Hackney Health and Wellbeing Board and the City of London Health and Wellbeing Board members together contribute to the JSNA with their knowledge and expertise.
