Eye health and sight loss; statistics and information for developing a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment

18 January 2018
Source: Eye Sector

Version 4: January 2015

Introduction

The number of people living with sight loss is set to increase over the coming decade. It is therefore important that when planning for local support and preventative services that the needs of people with sight loss and those at risk of losing their sight are understood.

The eye care and sight loss sector have produced this free resource for anyone involved with the development of or who are seeking to influence a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA).

The guidance pulls together a number of datasets and information and should be approached as a ‘menu of options’, selecting those which are more relevant for the local authority and health area.

There are strong links between sight loss and other health determinants which are identified within this guidance to assist local authorities, clinical commissioning groups (CCG) and Health and Wellbeing Boards (HWB) to meet local health and wellbeing strategic priorities.

For further information and support on how to use the guidance and for details of local contacts please contact RNIB
