Edinburgh Medical School, working with relevant health boards, has embarked on a programme of improvements for students to easily access Wi-Fi services when studying for the MBChB across Scotland.  In a significant step forward, we have recently provisioned eduroam access within NHS Lothian and NHS Borders.
