Q. What is the best way to manage accounts on the GP Practice Software System for trainee GPs and locums?

A. You need to be able to trace consultations, actions and interventions back to individual doctors, so each trainee or locum should be a registered user of the system. Having a generic 'Locum' account is not enough because after the passage of time it is very difficult to identify the particular locum using the system at that time. It might be useful to also use the doctor's medical council registration number, eg. Dr Joe Bloggs (12345).
