I briefly looked at applying to Duke Singapore, it's taught in English and would be acceptable for coming back to the UK eventually. First up, it's like American money expensive but maybe there is someone willing to lend if you got in (MCAT entry exam) It is a 4 year graduate entry course, and I believe you must stay in Singapore and work there as a doctor for 5 years after graduating or you face a very high financial penalty. I'm not sure about HK but here's Duke's website: https://www.duke-nus.edu.sg/education/md-programme
You would need an undergrad degree in order to apply, MCAT is quite pricey too.

Here in HK it's 6 years undergrad only for both CU and HKU. You have to speak/learn Cantonese and do a housemanship here after.
Not sure if we take non-HK citizens at all, you'll have to google (if you aren't).
