Advisory Committee on Clinical Excellence Awards 2018 (ACCEA)

The Clinical Excellence Awards recognise and regard NHS consultants and academic GPs who perform ‘over and above’ the standard expected of their role.  Awards are given for quality and excellence, acknowledging exceptional personal contributions.

The BOA can nominate a limited number of members and the 2018 application round is now open. Please could any members who wish the BOA to consider supporting them for a national award complete Application form A, and any supplementary form(s) (as appropriate), and to return this to Celia Jones at c.jones@boa.ac.uk by 13:00 on Tuesday 27th February 2018. Please note late submissions will not be accepted.

There are some important points to note when applying:

  • The forms on our website should not be sent directly to ACCEA, but only to us. You will also need to submit a self-nomination form on-line, direct to ACCEA (please note, at present, the ACCEA website has not been updated for 2018 – this is likely to be updated next week).
  • Anyone applying to us should apply separately to their College (where applicable): if you feature on our ranked list but have not applied directly to the College, then we cannot put you forward for consideration by them.
  • If you are applying for a Bronze or Silver award, only one of the supplementary forms D (Research and Innovation), E (Teaching and Training) or F (Leadership and Management) may be submitted. If applying for a Gold award, two forms may be submitted. ACCEA does not invite Platinum citations from specialty associations as these applications are dealt with at College and ACCEA level; however, we can and will make informal recommendations to the Presidents of the Royal Medical Colleges where appropriate.

Below members can find a guidance document on how to apply as well as the necessary application and supplementary forms.
