The 2019 Clinical Excellence Awards round will open on Thursday 7 February and close at 5pm on Thursday 4 April.

ACCEA will accept applications for new national awards and from those due to renew their award in 2019.

Consultants will need to put in a renewal application if:

they received their current award in the 2015 round

their award was last renewed in 2014 (awarded in 2010, 2005, 2000)

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.

All applications must be with the ACCEA by Thursday 4th April 2019. The responsibility for the online submission of the application to ACCEA rests firmly with the applicant. For more information on how to apply, visit the ACCEA website

If you would like to be considered for BAHNO support, please email your completed ACCEA application forms as one single document, either as MS word or PDF format, to by

5pm on Friday 22nd February 2019

Please note that you must supply newly completed forms for renewal applications by the dates above.  Please specifically outline your contribution to BAHNO and Head & Neck Oncology. We encourage you to apply to both your Specialist Association and the Royal Colleges for a place on their ranking list. If you wish for both organisations to consider your application, you must send your CVQ to both organisations as we do not exchange CVQ information.

The BAHNO Nomination Process

Applications for BAHNO support will be considered by a group comprised of the President, Honorary Secretary, Honorary Treasurer, Honorary Conference Secretary, another member of council, and a lay person. Citations will be written for those individuals whose names are put forward. Citators will be chosen by the ranking panel but will not necessarily be restricted to members of the panel. (Please note that no citations can be written by BAHNO for consultants who are not included on the ranked list)

You are reminded that even if you submit a nomination for consideration by BAHNO it remains your responsibility to ensure that all components of your application are submitted to the ACCEA within the deadlines. BAHNO will only submit citations to ACCEA and will not forward your CVQ. If you do not register with ACCEA we cannot submit a citation for you and you will not be on the ranked list.
