ACCEA Awards

Dear Colleagues

The 2017 Clinical Excellence Awards round has opened on 28th February, with a short window closing on Tuesday 25th April 2017.

There is guidance on the ACCEA website and FAQs:

There is also useful guidance on the application form over at the British Society of Rheumatology website:

New Applications:

The BSPR is able to support a limited number of new applicants at each level by means of citation. As part of the process, we are required to form a committee to ascribe applicants a ranking order:  (“2.4.4 The process used should be publicised to all your members in sufficient time to allow applicants to prepare applications, and should provide for self-nomination. You should confirm that your members are aware of processes for determining your ranked nomination list. This is mandatory.”)

As we have to complete this process, write and submit citations before the closing date, we have to set an earlier closing date for members seeking support. Please could members send a copy of their ACCEA application to by 5pm Monday 10th April 2017.

Renewal Applications:

Please could members send a copy of their ACCEA renewal application to by 5pm by 5pm Monday 10th April 2017.

Any questions, please contact me on the same email. Very best of luck to all applicants.

Greg Irwin, Chair BSPR
