Immediately prior to joining the Northside team, Corinne worked with the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust as a Senior Hand Therapist.

Her duties involved carrying out a wide range of tasks including: Assessment and treatment of adult and paediatric clients post trauma who were referred from Plastics, Orthopaedics, A&E, GP and Community Musculo-skeletal services. These patients presented with diverse problems, ranging from complex fractures, to multiple tendon and nerve lacerations and repairs. Corinne also provided post-operative wound care including management of skin grafts, skin flaps, hypergranulating tissue, and k-wire & external fixation devices. She cared for patients with healing by secondary intention, and Corinne carried out removal of sutures. 

At earlier stage in her career as a hand therapist Corinne worked as a Senior Hand Therapist with the London Hand and Wrist Unit for approximately six years. 

During this time Corinne assessed and treated patients who had pathologies, or had recent surgical procedures, varying from: fractures, closed/open tendon ruptures, ligament injuries, crush injuries, excision of tumours, tenosynovitis, tendinitis, tenovaginitis, fasciectomy, fasciotomy, nerve repairs, nerve decompressions, nerve palsy, trigger fingers, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), Work related upper limb disorder (WRULD), soft tissue reconstruction following osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis and conservative management of these arthritides.
