Dr Biswas qualified at Nottingham University in 1993, working in Accident and Emergency and paediatrics before completing a master’s degree in Sports Medicine. She qualified as a GP, worked at Headley Court (Military Rehabilitation Centre) and then completed a Clinical Fellowship in Sports Medicine at Queen Medical Centre in Nottingham.

For 20 years, she has worked with national and international sports teams (including football, cycling, athletics, sailing, canoeing, hockey, 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 with part of her role responsible for optimising athlete health.

She has worked at three Summer and one Winter Paralympic Games (two as Chief Medical Officer), The Commonwealth Games in Manchester, and Olympic Games in London and Rio. She is a tournament doctor for Queen’s and Wimbledon tennis tournaments.

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 the injury but also addressing the underlying causes, working closely with allied professionals e.g. physiotherapists and osteopaths to optimise care.
