The JSNA aims to establish a shared, evidence based consensus on the key local priorities across health and social care and is being used to develop Warwickshire’s Health and Wellbeing Strategy, Commissioning Plans for the Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and Transformation Plans for the local Health Economy.

2011 Census

2011 Census Logo

Key messages from the 2011 Census for each of Warwickshire’s districts and boroughs have just been published by Warwickshire Observatory. The 2011 Census makes a major contribution to our knowledge about communities in the county; their changing age structure, ethnic composition, work and travel patterns etc. In turn, this information provides an important early indication of issues which may emerge in the future and helps public services and other agencies identify need and plan future service delivery.

Quality of Life Report

Quality of LifeThe Warwickshire Observatory, with input from Public Health Warwickshire, produce an annual Quality of Life in Warwickshire report, which provides a detailed look at the people, places and communities in our county. The report is an assessment of the demographic, social, economic and environmental themes that all play a part in influencing our residents’ quality of life.

The need for this type of material is more important than ever, as increasingly limited resources need to be deployed in transparent, evidence-led ways. The Quality of Life report continues to provide local decision makers in the public, private, and voluntary sectors with that evidence base so that improving the lives of all of Warwickshire’s residents remains our collective priority.
