Pathway Plotter


This is an easy-to-use tool for creating pathway charts, as recommended by the National Cancer Waits team. Essentially all that is required is to enter the data where indicated and then click 'Chart'. If you click the 'Use sample data' button, you'll be able to play with a sample chart.

Version 1.1 has been adapted so it also works with looking at pathways during the day, e.g. patient journey times, by entering times of day instead of dates (thanks to Mark Cox for the suggestion).

You'll have to right click and choose "Save target as..." to download the file if you're using Internet Explorer.

Macros must be enabled in Microsoft Excel for these tools to work.
If you have any problems, make sure your Security level is set to Medium (Tools menu -> Macros -> Security), then reload the worksheet and choose 'Enable Macros'.
