Dear BIDA Members,
We are writing to inform you that the 2018 Clinical Excellence Awards round opened on Tuesday 13 February and will close at 5:00pm on Thursday 12 April.
BIDA’s closing date for nominations is Monday 19th March 5pm.2018 to give BIDA ACCEA committee sufficient time to meet and score the applications.
It is important on your BIDA application to inform us of your commitment and contribution to BIDA as an organisation.
ACCEA will accept applications for new national awards and from those due to renew their award in 2018.
Consultants will need to put in a renewal application if:
they received their current award in the 2014 round
their award was last renewed in 2013 (awarded in 2009, 2004, 1999)
In some cases, consultants will be renewing out of the usual cycle. Awards are reviewed earlier if there is a change in job or a significant change in job plan.
Updated guidance for applicants, nominators, employers and assessors will be published on the ACCEA website before the round opens.
Please cascade this information to your members and ensure that your own internal processes allow applicants sufficient time to complete and submit their applications to ACCEA.
Dr Vinod Gadiyar
Chairman, Hospital Doctors Forum
