ACCEA Round 2020 Suspended

Print Email
27 March 2020

It has been announced that the ACCEA 2020 Round has been postponed. This is to enable doctors to concentrate on the unprecedented clinical situation that we find ourselves in with COVID-19.  Please click here to see the news story from ACCEA.

MWF is, therefore, closing the nomination process until further information is received. We will keep the applications submitted already on file for reference but envisage that applications will be amended. The applications will not be scored at this time.

We reassure our members who were expecting to renew their awards in 2020 that renewal will be deferred until the process is run.


MWF would like to thank everyone who has been involved in the process so far including the people, both senior doctors and lay persons, who selflessly volunteered to score applications and provide citations.

In the meantime, thank you all for your work for the NHS at this difficult time.

BMA Survey On Assisted Dying

Print Email
24 February 2020

The BMA is surveying its members on assisted dying. The survey is until 27 February. BMA members should have received an email with details on how to vote. More details can be found here.

The survey results won't directly change BMA policy on assisted dying but they will inform a debate at the BMA's Annual Representative Meeting in Edinburgh, 21-25 June. Last year the Royal College of Physicians adopted a neutral policy on law change. Other Colleges, such as the Radiologists, Nurses, Psychiatrists and Anaesthetists have also committed not to campaign for or against law change.

This is also the view of the Medical Women’s Federation. We acknowledge our members have a range of views on assisted dying. We respect this variation and want to represent everyone as best we can. Though the MWF doesn’t hold a position on either side of the debate we will always speak out in the best interests of women doctors and their patients. If draft assisted dying legislation comes before Parliament we will aim to contribute our expertise.

Whatever your views, please make your voice heard in the BMA survey and encourage your colleagues to do the same. What medical bodies say in this debate will have a significant influence. This issue is not only important for doctors but also for our patients.
