National Clinical Impact Awards - 2022 applications open
The 2022 national Clinical Impact Awards competition is now open (previously ACCEA).
NHS consultant doctors, dentists and academic GPs can now apply for a new national Clinical Impact Award (NCIA) on the ACCIA application portal.
The national Clinical Impact Awards scheme (previously known as the national Clinical Excellence Awards) has been reformed in order to broaden access to the scheme, make the application process fairer and more inclusive, and ensure the scheme rewards and incentivises excellence across a broader range of activity and behaviours. Further information on the reforms can be found in the joint DHSC and Welsh Government consultation response.
Full details of the changes can be found here.

Application for submission to BIA
BIA Secretariat will confirm receipt of your application by return email (please make sure you get in touch with BIA if not received)
BIA is recognised by the Department of Health as a national nominating organisation (NNO) that can support a number of members' applications, and will support as many members as permitted by the regulations. You should not wait for notification of BIA support before submitting your application.
Consultants are advised to read the instructions from the ACCIA very carefully, as requirements and penalties for failure to follow instructions are more severe than previously.
The four most common errors, potentially leading to reduction in scoring and ranking or difficulties uploading citations are:
- Failure to be clear what years the work has been done in. It is essential to stress what has been achieved in the last 4-5 years since the last award if you already have one (including any local discretionary points /awards)
- Failure to include a clear outline of overall job plan including total PAs paid in main contract (both NHS and academic or other external) and any extra paid PAs and any on-call uplift, and to show how much extra work you do that is unpaid
- Repetition of the same activity/output across different domains of the form
- Failure to include correct personal GMC number and total PAs worked (often wrong and/or omitted) on the first page of the CVQ.
