Returning to Hong Kong, Daisy worked at one of the largest tertiary centres, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, as an associate consultant, and pioneered the comprehensive lung cancer programme aimed at reducing workflow barriers and streamlining patient care.

Daisy’s focus is on incorporating cutting-edge information into patient care, fostering strong communication with both patients and their families, and establishing aligned and prioritized goals. She is fluent in English and Cantonese, with a functional proficiency in Mandarin.

When not working, she plays the piano, enjoys reading, tramping and spending time with family and friends.
