The Doctor dealt with several residents of Coronation Street at Weatherfield General. In July 2012, she attended to a pregnant Izzy Armstrong when she was rushed in with abdominal pains. Father Gary Windass and other family members waited for news and the doctor told them that Izzy was going to be alright and wanted to see Gary. He had bad news waiting for him though - Izzy had miscarried and had wanted to break the news to Gary herself. The doctor was unable to give the couple a reason for the miscarriage, saying there were many possible reasons and sometimes the body just said that it was wasn't the right time. Izzy's father Owen Armstrong hadn't been pleased to hear that her daughter was expecting and she insisted he leave her alone. The doctor had no option but to ask him to leave to save the patient further stress.

Six weeks later there was a successful though frantic delivery when Kirsty Soames's waters broke after she was pushed into a table by Tina McIntyre in an altercation in the Rovers. Baby Ruby was delivered by Marcus Dent in the pub's back room and then taken by ambulance to the hospital where the doctor told Kirsty she had some bruising to the spine but otherwise mother and daughter were okay. She would be kept in overnight and see a physiotherapist in the morning to ensure that her mobility wouldn't be impaired over the next few days. For good measure, she told then to enjoy the first few years of parenthood as teenagers were a complete nightmare.

Her patient in January 2017 was Simon Barlow when Peter Barlow and Nick Tilsley accompanied him to the casualty department after he suffered an injury to his finger. The doctor told him that he had dislocated it and she would reset it after giving him an anaesthetic. Five months later, she had to break the news to Summer Spellman that her father Drew had died after a long battle against cancer and found herself having to hug the girl after she collapsed sobbing in her arms.

Seb Franklin and Faye Windass were her patients in November 2017 when she had to give both the results of a HIV test. While Faye was negative, Seb was positive, having contracted it from an ex-girlfriend and his condition only being discovered when hospitalised. Doctor Brennan told the lad that he would be referred to a clinic specialising in his condition and would be given regular blood tests to monitor his immune system. She recommended that in the meantime he looked after his health with good nutrition, exercise, enough sleep and stress avoidance in order that he could live a full life. She also embarrassed Faye by saying that with the right advice and protection the two of them could continue to enjoy a good sex life. Dazed by the news, Seb was unable to think of any questions that he might have.

In March 2019 she attended to Michelle Connor when she thought she was pregnant and builder Anton Radkov accidentally kicked a football into her stomach when having a kick about outside Underworld. Carla Connor took her to the hospital where the doctor told her that not only was she not pregnant, but she never had been.

Two years later, Yasmeen Metcalfe was brought in after collapsing at home. She had undergone a year of intense trauma after marrying serial coercive control abuser Geoff Metcalfe and even though he had died two months before her ordeal hadn't ended as she began to realise the full extent of the financial predicaments that he had left her in. The doctor ascertained from her granddaughter Alya Nazir that she was under a great deal of stress and, awaiting the results of some blood tests, kept her in for observation. The tests showed that there was nothing like a heart attack but instead Yasmeen had suffered a panic attack. The patient became over-animated, fearing that they were judging her to be mentally ill when she insisted that she wasn't. Getting Alya on her own, the doctor strongly recommended counselling and mild anti-depressants.
