Medical Doctor

Origin - Hong Kong


In order to get a better education for her children, Dr. Pui Ling Lee’s mother brought her children over to the UK. At age eleven, Pui Ling was excited with the aspect of living in a foreign country. However, soon after she started school in this country, she was being bullied and was constantly fighting with other children to protect herself and her brothers. Life in the UK was tough for the first few years. It was her mother’s wish that Pui Ling would become a doctor. |With determination and persistence Pui Ling finally fulfilled this dream becoming a doctor. Right after she gained her qualification, she wanted to give back something to society. In 1987 she set up the Healthy Living Centre, (previously named Health Resource Centre), close to Chinatown which provided a doctor’s surgery service for Chinese folks who don’t speak English. Twenty four years on, the Healthy Living Centre expanded its services and is now providing all sorts of activities, with the aim of educating the Chinese community about health. It has become a favourite get-together venue for a lot of Chinese folks.
