Phil Hammond Biography

Phil Hammond is a doctor, writer, broadcaster and comedian.  He was twice nominated for the prestigious Perrier award at the Edinburgh Festival, and has written Private Eye’s acclaimed medical column since 1992.

After working as a qualified NHS doctor, and seeing first-hand the failings of the beloved but troubled health service, Phil decided that his wit, once his ploy for sedating stressful medical situations, should become his full-time vocation.

He became half of Struck Off and Die, with whom he had five sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe, and who were twice selected for the Perrier Pick of the Fringe. The pair also won the Writers’ Guild and Silver Sony Awards for their Radio 4 series.

In 2002, Phil expanded his radio repertoire with a celebrity gig hosting ‘28 Minutes to Save the NHS’ for Radio 4. The show was eventually rolled out as a show...

In 2002, Phil expanded his radio repertoire with a celebrity gig hosting ‘28 Minutes to Save the NHS’ for Radio 4. The show was eventually rolled out as a show for the Edinburgh Fringe – and sold out.

The media’s medical go-to guy, Phil broke the story of the Bristol heart scandal; gave evidence to the subsequent Public Inquiry and presented five series of ‘Trust Me, I’m a Doctor’ on BBC 2.

In 2004 Phil’s first sitcom, ‘Doctors and Nurses, co-written with Nigel Smith, was broadcast on BBC 1, and he has appeared on Rob Brydon’s Annually Retentive; The Music Group on Radio 4, and his latest book, ‘Medicine Balls’ was followed up by his quirky and hilarious Sex, Sleep or Scrabble? – Seriously Funny Answers to Life’s Quirkiest Questions.
