The Advisory Committee on Clinical Excellence Awards (ACCEA) has announced the dates for the 2018 National Clinical Excellence Awards round.
The 2018 round will open on Tuesday 13 February and close on Thursday 12 April.
The British Society for Immunology is one of the recognised ACCEA national nominating bodies and is permitted to nominate a limited number of applicants for National Bronze, Silver and Gold Clinical Excellence Awards and can also support renewals with citations. Applicants must be members of BSI.
We will be convening a CEA panel in March, and those members seeking support for their applications are advised to email their completed CVQ to our Committees Officer, Angela Rausch by 12pm on Friday 23 February.
Please read the 'Guidance for Applicants' carefully before completing your application. This will shortly be available on the ACCEA website.
Since the timetable usually does not leave long for the BSI nomination and citation process, those requesting BSI support are advised to arrange for a BSI member who knows them to draft a supportive citation and to submit this to the BSI along with their application for support. Click here for advice on how to write a citation. Citation writers and the applicants whose form they are supporting should not normally be employed in the same organisation.
Members should be aware that it is their responsibility and not the BSI’s to ensure that they complete the CVQ form on the ACCEA website and submit it by the closing date.
