The Good JSNAs

LONDON BOROUGH OF HILLINGDON

Hillingdon has one of the best JSNAs as regards gender-disaggregated data and men’s health. It has 29 gendered measures (71% of its JSNA’s measures are gendered). The online JSNA is easy to use, has a clear format and the information is easily accessible. The JSNA covers issues often left out by other local authorities, most notably service-use and mental illness.

BOLTON METROPOLITAN BOROUGH COUNCIL

This JSNA contains 26 gendered measures (65% of its measures). It contains various information on all categories including gendered data on GP visits. NHS Bolton conducted its own Health and Wellbeing Survey. This has enabled the JSNA to contain a significant amount of data concerning men’s lifestyle behaviour and disease prevalence.

HAMPSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL

Hampshire has 27 gendered measures included as part of its JSNA (54% of its measures). Their online JSNA is clearly formatted with individual topics for each category. The County Council also provides a condensed version of the JSNA.

WIRRAL METROPOLITAN BOROUGH COUNCIL

Wirral’s JSNA contains 23 gendered measures (52% of its measures). Once again it has a clear format with individual web pages and documents for various categories. Wirral makes full use of the local data available to include male health priorities including a fair QOF allocation by gender.

The Men’s Health Forum need your support

It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.

Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.

Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
