About me

Dr Biswas qualified at Nottingham University in 1993 and worked in Accident and Emergency and then paediatrics before taking a year out to study for a Masters’ degree in Sports Medicine at The Royal London Hospital. She qualified as a GP before working Headley Court, the Military Medical Rehabilitation centre. She was appointed as Clinical Fellow in Sports Medicine at the Department of Sport and Exercise Medicine at the Queen Medical Centre in Nottingham. She helped to develop Sports medicine as a speciality culminating in its recognition in 2006.

She has worked with national and international sports teams (including football, cycling, athletics, rugby, sailing, canoeing, hockey and tennis) working at the Olympic Medical Institute, The British Olympic Association Intensive Rehabilitation Unit and the English Institute of Sport. She currently works at the English Institute of Sport at Bisham Abbey including a strategic role responsible for optimising athlete health.

She has attended 3 summer and 1 winter Paralympic Games, The Commonwealth Games in Manchester, and the Olympics in both London and Rio, as well as numerous European and World Championships with a variety of sports.
She has also been a tournament doctor for the Men’s and Women’s professional tennis tours for 15 years.

She is passionate about keeping athletes playing their sports, keeping active people active, regardless of their age, and helping inactive people become active. She has a holistic approach, treating not only an injury but also addressing the underlying cause or causes. She works closely with allied professionals such as physiotherapists and podiatrists to ensure optimal care for her patients.
