In the UK she was Clinical Director of the emergency department of the Royal Liverpool Children's Hospital, and was a founder of APLS (Advanced Paediatric Life Support). This led to developing the WHO course called ETAT (Emergency Triage Assessment and Treatment), which is now taught in many LMICs, all over the world.
Professor Molyneux and her husband were awarded OBE's in 2007 for their services to medicine. She has now retired but continues to visit Malawi and takes an active role supporting the new paediatric oncologist at QECH, Dr George Chagaluka.
