Post updated with new dates
The 2020 National Clinical Excellence Awards Round will open on Friday 13 March and will remain open until 1700 on Thursday 7 May. If you intend to apply for a new award, advancement of an award or renewal of an award and wish to seek a supporting statement from the College, please note the following:
Applying for Bronze, Silver or Gold Awards
You must submit your application online direct to the Advisory Committee on Clinical Excellence Awards (ACCEA) by Thursday 7 May. If you wish to apply for a supporting statement from the College, you should submit a copy of your application forms to firstname.lastname@example.org by 0900 on Monday 23 March.
Your application will then be considered by the College Distinction Awards Committee and you will be informed of the Committee’s decision in late March. You may also seek a supporting statement from College if you are applying for renewal of an existing award. You should apply for a renewal if you received your current award in the 2015 round or if your award was last renewed in 2014.
Applying for a New Platinum Award
You should submit your application for a new Platinum award to email@example.com (NOT directly to ACCEA) by 0900 on Monday 23 March. The applications considered to be suitable by the College are then forwarded to the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges for scoring, ranking, and subsequent submission, as appropriate, to ACCEA.
Applications for renewal of a Platinum award should be submitted online directly to ACCEA. However, a supporting statement may also be sought from College for a Platinum renewal in the same way as for Bronze, Silver and Gold.
In all requests for College support, please outline the activities you have undertaken on behalf of the College.
Application forms for 2020 and Guidance notes for applicants are available on the ACCEA website. The number of forms you may submit is dependent upon the level of award applied for.
