If you can modify the web page (i.e. it is on a local intranet, or company web page) then you can use the META-Refresh option, like this:
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh"
CONTENT="300"; URL=http://www.yoursite.com/some/place/">

Alternatively, you asked if the browser could be set to auto-refresh. I think you need a third party program like AutoURLRefresher, find it here:

Liked this as it opened the website in its own window.

Does exactly what I wanted.

Thanks

Preferred the app in the first answer as it opened the site in its own window but this is a good second.

you can set IE to look for a new versions of web page each time you start IE. Goto control panel and click internet options , then click settings in the Temporary File Settings section. Click the radio button that fits your needs.

Here is a link to microsofts website. You can also script this
