This Hearing Loss Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) guide presents evidence on the prevalence and impact of hearing loss. This JSNA guide should be used alongside NHS England’s Commissioning Services for People with Hearing Loss: A Framework for Clinical Commissioning Groups which was published in 2016. Together, these two key outputs of the Action Plan on Hearing Loss, aim to support local authorities and NHS commissioners to meet their statutory duties to assess the needs of local populations, take account of health inequalities, advance equality and commission high-quality services to meet local hearing needs and improve public health.
