The Advisory Committee on Clinical Excellence Awards (ACCEA) gives awards for quality and excellence, recognising the work done by NHS

expected from their role.
The number of new awards will remain at 300. ACCEA plans to publish the
results of the awards round in December 2015, which will then be backdated to 1
Following changes made to this year's round, ACCEA has published a
number of guidance documents for applicants and employers, these can be found on the ACCEA website along with a
summary of results from the 2014 round.
The submission period for a national award is open to 5pm on 17 June
ACCEA no longer plays a part in the employer-based awards. This was announced in 2014 and continues to be the case. Employers have discretion whether or not to run a local awards scheme and in coming to a decision, should take into account their current financial circumstances as well as the potential impact upon local staff engagement initiatives.
In managing the outcome of any decisions on local award schemes, we would advise employers to engage with their local negotiating committees (LNCs).
