Summary

Needs assessment is a systematic approach to identifying the health and healthcare needs of a population that allows services to make changes to improve health service delivery.1 Detecting unmet needs enables gaps in service provision to be recognised and for health policy to introduce changes that can reduce health inequalities and improve health outcomes.2 Equally, identifying areas of met needs means that the effectiveness of service delivery can be evaluated. With the rising cost of healthcare, the use of needs assessment has risen in prominence as it can aid decision-making in the planning of resources.3
