SEA UK support for higher award applicants (England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland)

The 2020 ACCEA round has now opened.

SEA UK is recognised by the Advisory Committee for Clinical Excellence Awards (ACCEA) as one of the specialist societies able to support nominations for anaesthetists applying for national Clinical Excellence Awards at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels for England and Wales (please note that specialist societies are unable to support applications for Platinum awards). The levels at which candidates may apply are as follows:

  • Candidates without a national award may apply at Bronze level.
  • Bronze award holders may apply at Silver level.
  • Silver award holders may apply at Gold level.
  • B Distinction Award holders may apply at SILVER level only.

If you are a member of SEA UK and have four or more points, or are otherwise being recommended to apply for a national award, and would like your application to be considered for support by SEA UK, please email your completed 2020 ACCEA application form to administrator@seauk.org by 17.00pm on the 18th March 2021

We are only able to support applicants who have been active in the field of education within anaesthesia, intensive care and pain medicine.

SEA UK has established an objective assessment and ranking process in accordance with strict ACCEA guidelines http://www.dh.gov.uk/health/category/accea . Applications will be considered and ranked by a panel that includes national and local award holders and lay representation. The ranked list of nominations will be formally submitted to the ACCEA.

In addition, SEA UK is now also recognised by both the Scottish Advisory Committee on Distinction Awards and the Northern Ireland Clinical Excellence Awards as being able to provide supporting statements for higher awards. If you are applying for a higher award under either of these systems, please contact me for details.
