The Advisory Committee on Clinical Excellence Awards (ACCEA) application process will open early in 2019. In preparation for this BSH will be posting updates on our website from January which will include a timeline and deadlines.  We also recommend that those interested in applying, and who wish to ask the Society to support their candidature, take a look at the official ACCEA site.

In the meantime, we would like to highlight a few things:

BSH can support bronze, silver and gold applications.

Applicants must be BSH members who are Consultants employed by the NHS in England or Wales.

In a change from previous years, applicants must find a referee to support their application. They should submit the application form and reference to BSH at the same time. 

The timeline for the process is tight, usually 6-8 weeks, so we cannot accept late applications.

Please highlight any work you do for BSH as part of your application.

Panel: Call for volunteers:

Each year the Society convenes a panel to review the applications it receives from members for BSH support for ACCEA awards. The panel needs to comprise a mix of ACCEA award holders and non award holders, and have one lay member. We are asking for members to volunteer to be part of the panel for the 2019 round. We welcome volunteers from around the UK. The workload consists of reviewing 20-30 applications and attending one teleconference meeting. If you are interested in applying please email info@b-s-h.org.uk by 15 January 2019.
