Clinical Excellence Awards recognise and reward NHS consultants and senior academic GPs who perform 'over and above' the standard expected of their role.  If you apply, you need to give evidence of impact across the following 5 areas:

  • Delivering a high-quality service
  • Developing a high-quality service
  • Leading and managing a high-quality service
  • Research and innovation
  • Teaching and training

MWF are a nominating body and offer advice and citations for National Clinical Award applications. The 2021 round is now closed and information on how to apply for a citation will be released when the 2022 round opens.

We would strongly advise you to check the ACCEA website for further information. 


Local Clinical Excellence Awards

As many members may be aware, LCEA guidelines state that part-time consultants are eligible for CEAs which are paid on a pro-rata basis. However, it is MWF’s belief that LTFT consultants should be paid the same as full-time colleagues as inputs, scoring and outputs are the same for any given number of CEAs. MWF would also like to draw our members attention to variations that may exist in different trusts and we would like to encourage members to bring the below NHS Employers guidance to the attention of your LNC Chair.

NHS Employers state on their website 

“employers have the discretion to reach agreement locally about the proportion of award that part-time consultants can receive and can agree with their LNC not to pro-rata the award for part-time consultants.”

MWF is interested in learning whether our members are aware of the local variations that exist and we would be really grateful if you could spare a few minutes to fill out this survey. Please click here.
