We use intelligence to help inform our activities. We analyse feedback provided by the public and consider insight provided by other agencies to develop a picture of current health issues in Brighton and Hove. We then assess these issues using a prioritisation tool to identify those that we believe should be included in our workplan.

We used a combination of Public Health Brighton’s Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNA) and analysis of our own data gathered from our Information line, online surveys and feedback provided by our volunteer representatives attending strategic meetings to identify these priorities.

The November 2018 review identified 13 key health issues for Brighton and Hove.
