Clinical Impact Awards (ACCIA)

It’s the time of year when you can request College support if you’re applying for a Clinical Impact Award (formerly Clinical Excellence Awards).

The deadline for requests for College support is 5pm on Wednesday 11 May.

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

As a recognised nominating body, the College can recommend a limited number of members to ACCIA, in the form of a ranked list and can provide citations to support these applications.

The Clinical Impact Awards – which are overseen by the Advisory Committee on Clinical Impact Awards – reward consultants or academic GPs in England and Wales who deliver national impact above the expectations of their job role or other paid work.

If you apply, you need to give evidence of impact across the following five domains:

  1. Delivering and developing a high-quality service
  2. Leadership
  3. Education, training and people development
  4. Innovation and research
  5. Other areas of national impact, with specific reference to NHS priorities, where relevant.

Please see our page for further details on the timetable for College support and for the form to complete:
