Local clinical excellence awards - planning future rounds webinar

Webinar to learn the current position on awards rounds and hear from employers about some good practices on how awards have been implemented.

General information

29 March 2023 13:00 - 14:30 GMT
Open to all

Future LCEA award rounds form part of the consultant offer being put to vote by trade unions in an effort to resolve the current industrial action dispute. If members vote in favor of the offer, the contractual entitlement to new LCEAs will cease from 1 April 2024. The 2023/24 award round should continue to progress as agreed and planned locally to ensure that the required minimum investment funds are spent on eligible consultants. Employers may decide to pause development work on 2024/25 award round designs whilst the vote takes place. We expect the outcome of the vote to be announced by the 25 January 2024.

Our free webinar presented on the future plans for local clinical excellence award (LCEA) schemes, along with some good practice from a trust using an IT solution to run awards rounds.

LCEAs are a yearly award scheme which is operated at a local level for consultants. A consultant applies for an award and the employer scores the application and issues payments to successful applicants. Due to non-agreement at a national level employers must now plan how to design and run their schemes.

Topics covered:

  • information to demonstrate the current position and what employers will need to do next
  • from employers who will present their award schemes and how they have initiated them within their trusts
  • from Corporation Pop, a company that has implemented a software system for Manchester Foundation Trust, that provides a platform for applications to be submitted and also has the capability to provide various data reporting.

Who attended

Anyone with any interest in managing or delivering the LCEA scheme and its administration.
