ACCEA Applications

SCATA is registered with the ACCEA (Advisory Committee on Clinical Excellence Awards) as a Specialist Society. As such it is able to support applications by its members if appropriate. It should be emphasised that a citation has to be provided by the Society for any nomination it supports, so the applicant should have made a significant contribution to the Society or its aims.

Members seeking SCATA's support MUST be making an application in the usual way via the ACCEA website.

Applicants for SCATA support will be reviewed by a subcommittee consisting of the President, Chairman, Vice-chairman and a lay member. SCATA'S list and accompanying citations will then be submitted to ACCEA.

The indicative timetable for the 2020 Clinical Excellence Awards round will open on 6th February and close at 5pm on 3rd April. Outcomes will be announced in December.

With this in mind any member wishing to seek the support of the Society should visit the web site and login or register.

Please contact the SCATA Chairman to indicate that you are looking for a citation.

The ACCEA secretariat are also looking to recruit volunteers for the sub-committee and sent the following to SCATA at the end of September 2019 :

Recruitment for our ACCEA Sub- Committee membership

As you may be aware, we have a cohort of over-330 sub-committee members to maintain across England. And, as you may appreciate, it takes a considerable amount of time and effort to sustain and refresh our membership.

We would be very grateful for your assistance in helping us recruit members to join our regional sub-committees and take part in scoring national Clinical Excellence Award applications in the 2020 awards round.

We have a number of vacancies across the regions for-

  • Employer member, (managers from Trusts and Arm’s Length Bodies) will consider the employer’s perspective and whether the applicant brings benefits back to their organisation and the wider NHS;
  • Lay member, (to give an objective view) will be knowledgeable about the workings of the NHS and may have informed lay involvement in healthcare and experience of the patients’ perspective;

I have attached the application form and some background information for prospective members which highlights the:-

  • Core role as a sub-committee member
  • Benefits of becoming an ACCEA sub-committee member
  • Induction and training offered
  • How to apply

The attached documents referred to above have been re-posted on the SCATA Dropbox share. Please note that SCATA does not maintain these, and you should check the ACCEA web site for more up to date versions.
