Applying for RCP support in the 2017 round of the national clinical excellence awards

The Royal College of Physicians has announced its involvement in the national clinical excellence awards round for 2017.

As a national nominating body the RCP will continue to make recommendations for clinical excellence (previously known as Distinction) Awards. This process covers awards at bronze, silver, gold and platinum levels in England and Wales only, and does not apply to Northern Ireland, Scotland and the Defence Medical Services.

For the 2016 round the RCP has released guidance notes, tips and background information to help inform applicants and interested parties about the arrangements for this year's process. More information on the national clinical awards scheme is available from the UK government's Advisory Committee on Clinical Excellence Awards (ACCEA).

How to apply


To allow time to for RCP to process, score and shortlist applications the RCP support scheme opens on Wednesday 1 February and will close on Sunday 5 March at 5pm.
