It depends on how much hull you had to begin with.
At the low end hull matters a lot, but once you have a certain amount of buffer, it loses it's importance. If you're in either a cruiser or a patrol escort you can survive bleedthrough damage, and have a bit of buffer to heal. Attacks that would insta-kill the patrol escort are likely to do it to the cruiser too.
Something like a BoP can die if you blink at the wrong time, no matter what the shields are like.
I've never really complained about the hull on the JHAS though -- basic escorts are already at the point where more hull wouldn't help them much, so it's not a big advantage for them. My problem with the JHAS has always been that it is best-in-class in every category, and has a turn-rate inconsistent with other escorts. The Wells has a similar problem, but dogfighting ability isn't so crucial on a science ship.
