Health in Brent

Brent CCG uses a range of data sources including hospital data, primary care data patient engagement and experience data and the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) produced by the Public Health department of the local authority to identify the health needs and inequalities, which exist in the local population. These key data sources inform the strategic planning of Commissioning Intentions and the development of service models to meet the needs of Brent people.


Key health challenges in Brent are described in detail in the Brent JSNA. The JSNA consists of chapters on specific themes which impact on health inequalities as listed below. For more detailed descriptions of the Brent place, its people, health needs and inequalities please visit:
