Clinical Excellence Awards (ACCEA)

Submissions for 2021 are now closed. Information will be provided here once the 2022 round has been announced.

The Clinical Excellence Awards – which are overseen by the Advisory Committee on Clinical Excellence Awards (ACCEA) – recognise and reward exceptional contribution, from NHS doctors in England and Wales, over and above what is normally expected in a post, particularly where it has had a demonstrable national and international impact.

In line with our College values, and our Equality Action Plan, we would welcome nominations from members of all backgrounds, particularly female and Black, Asian and minority ethnic College doctors.

Once ACCEA have announced the details of the 2022 nominations we'll update this page with information on how to apply for College support.

Please contact the Awards Administrator at if you have any questions relating to the Clinical Excellence Awards.
