Area we cover


South Eastern Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group covers 150 square miles, including Havant, Waterlooville, Petersfield, Bordon and part of the South Downs National Park.

Our population

The area we cover has a population of around 209,000 people. This includes:

  • A higher than average number of people aged 45 to 60 years
  • Lower than average numbers of young people
  • 6,000 people who are over the age of 85 years
  • Around 2,500 new births every year.

We expect the population to grow over the next few years and particularly in the over 65s.

The health of local people

As you might expect within a diverse area, the health picture for our population varies. Economic and lifestyle factors can be a big influence on health and we know that there are areas of significant deprivation in the local area and this can have a big impact on people's health and wellbeing.

We know that:

  • People in the more affluent areas of South East Hampshire are likely, on average, to live around 2.7 years longer than those in more deprived areas
  • The proportion of people living with cancer is greater than the national average
  • A higher proportion of people have chronic heart disease, stroke and hypertension than compared to other parts of the country
  • The proportion of people with mental illness or dementia in our area is similar to figures nationally, however estimates suggest that dementia rates will increase significantly over the next 20 years.

Joint Strategic Needs Assessment

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) identifies the current and future health and social care needs of the local population and analyses whether needs are being met locally.
