    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 former steelworks town of Consett. In 2000, she gained the RCVS certificate in small animal surgery. She is honorary treasurer of the Society of Practising Veterinary Surgeons and a member of the RCVS Council
