Making the right moves
  1. Jacqui Molyneux

    Jacqui Molyneux qualified from Bristol in 1981. She initially entered small animal practice in Liverpool and later moved to County Durham. In 1984, she started a practice in the ex-steelworks town of Consett. In 1997, the practice moved into new purpose-built premises and, in 2000, gained hospital status. Last year, a hydrotherapy pool was added to the practice facilities. She holds an RCVS certificate in small animal surgery.
