An indication of the type of booking system used for allocating the OUT-PATIENT APPOINTMENT. In any booked system (partial or full), the patient is given the choice of when to attend. In a partial booking system the patient is given an indication of how long the wait should be and is contacted by the HEALTH CARE PROVIDER at some point after the referral is made to be given a choice of dates for the appointment. In a full booking system the patient should be given the opportunity to book an appointment within one working day of the request.
