National Clinical Impact Awards – Role of Member Organisations
The ACCIA have recently announced important changes to their processes for selecting individuals for National Clinical Impact Awards. They will no longer accept citations and Member Organisations may no longer provide ranked lists of candidates. They felt that neither of these processes had been having a significant impact on the outcome of the final rankings and they were potentially dissuading some candidates from applying. They still feel that Membership Organisations will have a role in advising candidates on applications though the notice of these changes has been very short. The application process for this year opens on the 3rd March and closes on the 28th April. The BSH strongly recommends that candidates read the guidance provided by the ACCIA and complete their applications strictly according to this. Failure to do so results in otherwise strong applications being marked down harshly.
