Jacqui Thornton is a health journalist, facilitator and media trainer who, after a 15 year career in British national newspapers, now advices clinicians, medical charities and the pharmaceutical industry on communication skills.
After reporting stints on the Daily Telegraph and Express, she joined the Sunday Telegraph as a news reporter in 1996, and became its health correspondent two years later. In 2000 she moved to the Sun as the paper's first Health Editor.
Since 2007 she has run Jacqui Thornton Communications, whose clients include the Royal College of Surgeons, the GMC, the Wellcome Trust and government, as well as pharmaceutical firms and charities.
She chairs at conferences, advisory boards and private meetings and media trains clinicians, pharmaceutical executives and business people. She has also written a number of major reports.

Front PageGMC reportJacqui was the writer for the General Medical Council's major annual report The state of medical education and practice: 2012, which was launched with a media fanfare.
The 140-page publication, covered by the BBC, Sky, ITN and many newspapers, found that complaints about doctors have risen by almost a quarter, after a similar rise the year before. Read it here.

Two teams of personal injury lawyers from Leigh Day & Co had the media training treatment by Jacqui.
The group, made up of partners and assistant solicitors, was quizzed on medical negligence, defective devices and law reforms, with TV, radio and print practice.

Jacqui is chairing at the party conference fringes again this year, for the Royal College of Surgeons, Patient Information Forum and Boeringer Ingleheim.
The event, in the form of a pub quiz, follows the success of a similar bash last year, which was light-hearted but hard-fought. Follow it on twitter #bighealthquiz.

Jacqui is facilitating a session at an international conference on Continuing Medical Education in November.
The 5th European CME Forum will hear from experts from the US, Australia and Europe on how their systems work.
