ACCEA Recruiting for Sub-Committee Membership

13 August 2020

The ACCEA are looking to recruit members to join their Advisory Committee on Clinical Excellence Awards (ACCEA) Sub-Committee.

ACCEA hope to open the 2020 and 2021 rounds later this year for national Clinical Excellence Awards (CEAs), however this is still to be confirmed. Given the cancellation of the awards round in March 2020, there are likely to be more new applications and double the number of award renewals to be scored. ACCEA are therefore seeking to increase membership of the 13 regional sub-committees to reduce the burden on existing members. They are looking for local or national award holders, as well as Employers and Retired Lay Members who hold or held a role in the NHS or Healthcare and would like to help.

How to apply

These documents also contain some background information for prospective members that highlights the:

  • Core role as a sub-committee member
  • Benefits of becoming an ACCEA sub-committee member

  • Professional members (practising consultants)
