Karen Hiu Ching Lo, Trustee

Karen Hiu Ching Lo

Karen has been a volunteer for FTWW for a number of years. She moved to Cardiff to study medicine yet found herself struggling with her own health at the same time.

Having faced barriers both as a patient and a medical student, she is determined to be the doctor that she would personally want to see – empathetic, caring and respecting her patients as people – an equal.  

Karen’s aim is to improve NHS Wales on a systemic-level through coproduction, ensuring patients’ concerns are communicated effectively and relaying considerations from clinicians to promote shared-decision making and understanding between all parties.
