Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and Welsh Government ministers have agreed the Advisory Committee on Clinical Excellence Awards’ (ACCEA) proposals following suspension of the 2020 round.
They have agreed that:
applications for the 2020 national Clinical Excellence Awards competition should remain suspended
consultants and academic GPs unable to submit a renewal application in 2020 (whose awards are due to expire 1 April 2021) will not be disadvantaged – their awards will be extended by one year
ACCEA should keep plans for new applications under review based on the ongoing impact of coronavirus (COVID-19)
ACCEA and DHSC and Welsh Government ministers have listened to advice from the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, Royal Colleges, employers and applicants in making these decisions.
ACCEA will further update award-holders and stakeholders on plans for the 2020 and 2021 national Clinical Excellence Awards competitions after the pandemic has subsided.
Consultants and academic GPs who were due to renew their awards in the 2020 competition should log in to the online system to ensure that we have your up-to-date email address.
We will contact you to explain how to extend your awards by one year.
