ACCEA Seeks New Committee Members

« View all News items
29 Apr 2013

The Advisory Committee on Clinical Excellence Awards (ACCEA) is an independent, Non-Departmental Public Body whose main function is to receive and assess applications from NHS consultants and academic GPs for Clinical Excellence Awards.

The current Clinical Excellence Award Scheme has been under review for over two years. In December 2012 the DH published the Review Body on Doctors' and Dentists' Remuneration (DDRB) report on a 'Review of compensation levels, incentives and the Clinical Excellence and Distinction Award schemes for NHS consultants'. The proposals in this report which are wide ranging are currently the subject of discussions between the BMA and the NHSE. As a new scheme cannot be in place until 2014 at the very earliest ACCEA is anticipating that there will be a 2013 round of Clinical Excellence Awards although at this stage formal authorisation to hold a round has not been given.

On the assumption of a 2013 round ACCEA wishes to continue with its established principle of having a regular turnover of regional sub-committee members. In addition, a number of natural vacancies exist on all the ACCEA regional sub-committees.

ACCEA is therefore seeking to recruit to its sub-committees in the expectation of a 2013 round.  In addition, there are three vacancies on the main committee of ACCEA.

Closing date for applications is 24 May 2013.
