Arden PCN (Primary Care Network)

Hello my name is Miss Abria Sienna, I’m the latest member of the team at Arden PCN.  I am passionate about enabling members of the community to access provision and widen participation in services available to them.  I will be leading on new initiatives that will help to increase social and economic inclusion.

My role as social prescriber is to help people to identify ‘what matters to them’, and work out how to connect with the activities that might make a difference.  I am here to provide personalised support to patients, families and informal carers to take control of your wellbeing and help to improve your health outcomes.  I am able to provide information, advice, guidance and support with all things non-medical: i.e. isolation, access to activities, confidence, healthier lifestyle – walking groups, park-run, wellbeing, accommodation, work life balance, employment and education to mention a few.  I have over eighteen years’ experience of working in Warwickshire both supporting ‘Our Warwickshire Community’ and working in partnership with various agencies to widen participation.  I look forward to meeting you and supporting the Arden PCN and wider community.

For the first time in its history, England’s largest festival of heritage and culture will feature online events as well as in-person activities. Heritage Open Days (HODs) will take place between 11th-20th September 2020.

Uncovering stories, sites, places and people that traditional history has overlooked or forgotten has always been at the heart of HODs. This year people can experience virtual tours and take part in online discussions as well as visiting historic places and green spaces in person. This means visitors can just as easily explore events across England, as those on their doorsteps and all for FREE.

To find out what is going on in the locality or further afield visit Heritage Open Days.
