2018 ACCEA Awards information

This is to inform you that the ACCEA award scheme for 2018 is now open. The ACCEA accepts citations for clinical excellence awards from BSSPD for the 2018 round.  The latest round of National Clinical Excellence Awards opened on Tuesday 13 February and closes at 5pm on Thursday 12 April 2018.

With this in mind, we are inviting applications to be considered by BSSPD for this year.  BSSPD will assemble a panel based on ACCEA guidelines to vet and rank these applications. ACCEA will accept applications for new national awards and from those due to renew their award in 2018.

Consultants will need to put in a renewal application if:

  • They received their current award in the 2014 round
  • Their award was last renewed in 2013 (awarded in 2009, 2004, 1999)

In some cases, consultants will be renewing out of the usual cycle. Awards are reviewed earlier if there is a change in job or a significant change in job plan.

Updated guidance for applicants, nominators, employers and assessors will be published on the ACCEA website before the round opens.

If you wish an application to be considered by the BSSPD for a citation, please forward your ACCEA application electronically to BSSPD Secretary, Mrs Claire Field at:

BSSPD Deadline:  5pm on Monday 12th March 2018.

Along with your ACCEA application could you also send a supporting statement of no more than 200 words outlining the contributions you have made to the BSSPD and any roles undertaken, with dates where possible.

I would stress that this process is only if you wish to be considered for a Higher Award (Level 9 National (Bronze), Level 10 (Silver) or Level 11 (Gold).

Please submit all applications to Claire Field by email no later than 5pm Monday 12th March 2018.
