Are you an NHS consultant who goes above and beyond in your work? Does your work inspire others and have a positive impact on the NHS at a national level?

The National Clinical Impact Awards [NCIAs], previously the National Clinical Excellence Awards, are prestigious awards, granted to some of the NHS’ most senior clinicians via an annual competition. The awards seek to recognise the unique and specialised role that NHS consultant doctors, dentists and academic GPs play and the impact of their work on the NHS at a national level.

We want to ensure the scheme is fully reflective and representative of this diversity and therefore encourage applications from all consultants who believe they meet the criteria; More information and guidance on the awards can be found on the ACCIA website under Information and Guidance

The 2023 NCIA application round is now closed and applications are being assessed - we will be in contact with applicants and employers at appropriate stages in the process.

If you have any questions please contact the ACCIA Secretariat on 020 7972 4608 or by emailing us
