The RCP has been informed that ACCEA (Advisory Committee on Clinical Excellence Awards) will soon be opening the 2017 application round for new and renewal of national Clinical Excellence Awards in England and Wales.
As in previous years the RCP will be supporting applicants for new awards as a National Nominating Body. However, this is a very competitive process and there is a limit to the number of consultants we are allowed to recommend. Please note that national awards are subject to renewal every 5 years and this is not automatic.
The RCP can provide citations for renewal applicants, but renewal applicants must treat applications to ACCEA as seriously as a new application. To be successful applicants must score at least as highly as the lowest-scoring newly-granted award at that level in the year.
More information on applying for RCP support in the 2017 round of the national clinical excellence awards is available alongside support and tips.
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.
