Leave a Comment The Advisory Committee on Clinical Excellence Awards (ACCEA) has announced that the 2020-21 round will open on Monday 7th December 2020.
The closing date for final submission of applications to the ACCEA via their on-line application system is 5pm on Thursday 18 March 2021.
This deadline applies to applications for both new awards and renewals of current awards and allows 14 weeks for all stages of the process to be completed, which is an extension from the usual 8 weeks.
ACCEA will accept applications for new national awards from consultants working for the NHS in England and Wales and for renewed awards from those due to renew their award in 2021. This includes those who were due to renew in 2020 and whose awards were extended by one year.
Award holders will need to submit a renewal application if:
they received their current award in the 2017 round
their award was last renewed in 2016 (awarded in 2012, 2007, 2002)
their award was due to be renewed in 2020 and was extended by one year
Those wishing to apply for support from NACCS will need to e-mail their application forms to [email protected] by Friday 5thFebruary 2021 at the latest.
The updated guidelines and application form will be posted on the ACCEA website soon.
The process has been simplified, so please ensure you read the guidelines before completing the form.
As a reminder, all applications must be done via the online system, if you do not have an account you will need to create one here. You will need to nominate someone who is not working in the same institution as yourself to write a citation for you. You will need to inform us at the time of your application who that person is. Please ensure both you and they look at the rules regarding the citation on the ACCEA website as above and also read this advice.
Best of luck

Leave a CommentThe Seventh National Audit Project (NAP7) of the Royal College of Anaesthetists will examine Perioperative Cardiac Arrest.
A panel comprised of senior clinicians from the RCoA, the National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia (NIAA), Health Services Research Centre (HSRC), and trainee and lay representatives selected the topic after a highly competitive application process.
The topic has now been ratified by the Clinical Quality & Research Board and College Council and is now formally the focus for NAP7.
The RCoA and HSRC would like to thank everyone who submitted a proposal for NAP7. The selection panel also wished to note the high level and quality of trainee involvement in the proposals for NAP7, including the submission for the successful topic.
The NAP7 Project Team are currently in the planning stage of NAP7, and look to begin data collection in Spring 2020.
Leave a Comment The purpose of the Joint Travel Awards is to facilitate attendance to a SNACC annual meeting by a trainee by offsetting cost allowing the recipient the opportunity to present a poster. These awards are given to the trainee member of NACCS (trainee/fellow) receiving the highest score by abstract graders. The award consists of a financial award and presentation of a certificate during the annual meeting. To qualify, candidates should be either a medically qualified trainee/fellow & NACCS member at the time of the annual meeting and must be the presenting author of an abstract accepted for presentation at the SNACC annual meeting. The recipient must attend the SNACC annual meeting to receive their award and certificate. The award is equivalent to a total of £500 with a contribution of $250 from SNACC.
