Dr Hugh van’t Hoff – Director, Facts4Life

Hugh is a practising GP and founder of Facts4Life. He spent several years working in hospital medicine until his outlook was profoundly altered by post-graduate training in tropical medicine. Here he learnt about the narrowness of traditional western medical teaching set against the wide context of international public health.

He began applying his understanding in inner city Bristol during his training as a GP. This was where Facts4Life was born – a unique approach to health literacy and resilience combining the expertise of multiple sectors. The collaboration of health and education professionals has led to the development of an innovative curriculum that gives permission to children, young people and their parents to explore illness and health and build confidence in managing the ups and downs of life.
