2020 National Clinical Excellence Awards Suspended

The Advisory Committee on Clinical Excellence Awards (ACCEA) has decided to suspend applications for the 2020 national Clinical Excellence Awards competition.

ACCEA is aware of the increasing impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on all NHS staff, and knows that Royal Colleges, employers, ACCEA committee members and applicants are concerned about the time needed to apply for an award and for employers to sign them off, which may be at the expense of clinical priorities.

The Committee has therefore suspended applications for the 2020 national Clinical Excellence Awards competition. There is now no need to complete an application or for employers to sign off those already submitted.
