Hugh Pym

Hugh is the BBC’s health editor. He has been reporting politics, economics, public spending and NHS finance for more than two decades. He was a correspondent for ITN and has co-authored several books including Inside The Banking Crisis. Hugh comes from a medical family - his father was a doctor, his brother has pursued a career in research, and his mother was a vet. The family joke was that the dog got more sympathy than anyone else who was feeling unwell.
