Clinical Excellence Awards recognise and reward NHS consultants who perform ‘over and above’ the standard expected of their role. The Advisory Committee on Clinical Excellence Awards gives awards for quality and excellence, acknowledging personal contributions.
The OAA will accept applications from consultants for new Bronze, Silver and Gold awards, and will conduct a scoring, ranking and nomination process in accordance with ACCEA guidance.
The OAA can also support applications for renewal of awards by including application forms in the scoring process and submitting citations on behalf of renewal applicants.

In order to assist us with the processing of your application, when you submit your forms, please include in your covering email the name and email address of a potential citation writer. The OAA will contact citation writers identified by applicants by email to request citations. Please note that if successful, your citation would need to be submitted to by 09:00 on Monday 16th March 2020.
