Clinical Excellent Awards 2018

Have you been performing above and beyond the level expected of you in your role?

Have you made an outstanding contribution to patient care or professional leadership?

If you have, now’s the time to be preparing your application for a Clinical Excellence Award.

ACCEA (Advisory Committee on Clinical Excellence Awards) has announced that the 2018 Clinical Excellence Awards round will be open 13 February–12 April and it is expected to follow a similar format to previous years.

More information about the Awards can be found here on the ACCEA website.


What support does the College provide?

The college is encouraging members to read up on the award scheme and to enter if you think you have a chance.

We will be supporting applications and offering guidance on the ACCEA process as needed.


What do I need to do next?

Applicants need to fill out a CVQ form on the ACCEA website and submit a copy of this to the College by Tuesday 27 February.

You could wait until the 2018 form is released but if you’d like to start preparing your application earlier – bearing in mind the process is likely to be similar to last year – here’s the 2017 application form (RTF) so you can see what you’re likely to need.

You will also need to complete additional forms from the list below; you must choose one if you are applying for Bronze or Silver, two if you are applying for Gold and all three for Platinum. 

These are also the 2017 versions:


How will I know when the 2018 forms have been published?

Further details of how to apply will appear on the College’s homepage in the coming weeks, once ACCEA have released the forms and guidelines for this year. In the meantime please contact the Awards Administrator at if you have any questions.
