Paul Hughes Director London Euston +44 (0)20 7728 2256

I am responsible for our NHS provider clients across the UK as well as leading Grant Thornton's London, south-east and Anglia specialist public sector assurance team. My role is to ensure that we deliver exceptional service through insightful business relationships.

I am passionate about supporting our clients to improve their governance, maximising the effectiveness of their processes for making sound decisions that will improve delivery to service users, with a real interest in both them and the sector as a whole.

As a member of Grant Thornton's Governance Institute, I am part of a team bringing together best practice from the public and large corporate sectors. I lead commentary on our thought leadership and national reports on governance in local government and the NHS, and also present on the subject.

In addition I manage relationships with a portfolio of clients, including NHS foundation trusts, NHS trusts, clinical commissioning groups and large local authorities. I have developed a wide experience of delivering governance and financial advisory work to the public sector.

Outside of work I enjoy watching movies (especially sci-fi), listening to music (especially electronic), quiet family time and a bit of gym training, kayaking and snowboarding.
