fast tracked 


A generic term used in the UK for any accelerated access of a patient to a particular health or social service–e.g., fast tracking patients with higher stage cancer for urgent surgery or fast tracking war veterans to specialist care.

Fast tracking is a permutation of “jumping the cue”, but deliberately designed into the system to ensure fairness.
