8. Appendices

8.5. Internet Resources

Access to websites and e-mail facilities from remote sites is useful throughout a student’s training in general practice. It can be used for study and research purposes as well as maintaining contact with the college. Any urgent messages and changes of venues etc that require notification will be done electronically.

Students and tutors need to ensure they can regularly check for such messages.

Each practice should provide a PC for students to use. The PC will either be free-standing and connect via a dial up modem or via the local practice network (NHS Net). The practice will need to provide a login and password for student use whilst at the practice. 

Please be aware of confidentiality issues and that inappropriate use of the computer and/or internet access will be taken as a disciplinary matter and should be brought to the attention of the unit convenor.
