He was the founder of the Acne Support Group which was the first UK charity for acne and rosacea but stepped down as chairman of the charity in 1999 when he and his wife had triplets. The ASG unfortunately folded and as he approached retirement Prof Chu saw the real need for a charity offering support and information to sufferers of acne and rosacea and education for doctors and pharmacists. In 2017, he founded the Acne and Rosacea Association UK.

During his time as an NHS consultant at Hammersmith Hospital he was the chairman of the Skin Cancer Multidiciplinary Team for Imperial College NHS Trust and established the mole mapping service at the Hospital. He maintains an active interest in moles and skin cancer.
