open appointment

A UK term of art for an as-yet unscheduled patient appointment approved by the hospital consultant (specialist) who saw the patient and gave him or her a specific time frame—e.g., 6 months—in which to book an appointment for repeat evaluation, without needing a formal re-referral from the patient’s GP.
