Dr Tang qualified from University of Wales College of Medicine in 1997 and completed her GP training in 2001. She currently works in South Wales as a GP locum and also as a Breast Cancer Physician with the oncology team at Velindre Cancer Centre. Dr Tang joined Medical Detection Dogs initially as the Medical Advisor before also becoming a Trustee, and enjoys working with the charity since it combines two of her passions – medicine and dogs.

Currently the owner of a rescue Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Dr Tang grew up around dogs and is very enthusiastic about the ability of the charity’s highly trained dogs to help doctors with the management of diseases at all levels, from screening and aiding in diagnosis and monitoring of diseases to helping improve the quality of life for patients with the long-term management of their conditions. Her involvement with the Medical Alert Assistance Dog programmes allows her to see the physical and psychological health benefits that these dogs give to these patients and, because of the early warnings given by the dogs, how they directly reduce acute life-threatening episodes and emergency hospital admissions for the patients.

Outside of work, Dr Tang enjoys travelling to remote areas on wildlife trips, and has observed the mountain gorillas in Rwanda and polar bears in the Arctic.

Dr Tang also served for a time as a Trustee of Medical Detection Dogs, and enjoys working with the charity since it combines two of her passions – medicine and dogs.
