We have developed example templates to assist employers in developing the financial element of their end-of-year reports for local clinical excellence awards (LCEAs).
As employers have the option to allocate awards on a points-based approach or by determining the value of the awards locally (allowing for the allocation of awards of different values), we have provided two versions:
The Local clinical excellence awards guidance, which was launched in July 2018, sets out that employers must produce an annual report to be shared with their trust board and joint local negotiating committee (JLNC), detailing:
- the number of eligible consultants eligible
- the number of awards granted
- the total spend on performance awards including that spent on existing LCEAs.
The report should also detail distribution by protected characteristics within the trust. After consideration by the trust board and the JLNC, the report should be made available on the trust website. Employing trusts should also list the successful applicants and the value of award gained on their intranet.
