ACCEA Awards: Who can apply for what and how? Awards are made locally (points 1-8) and nationally (Bronze to Platinum). Progression and desirable support are shown below. LOCAL SCHEME: Points-based. Each Trust 0 establishes a committee of 10-15 members NATIONAL SCHEME 1-8 9 Applicants require support of their Regional ACCEA Committee Bronze PLUS Specialist Societies (BSG) AND/OR B Silver Royal colleges AND/OR Universities Gold AND/OR Other national bodies (eg BMA, Medical Women’s Federation , British Platinum International Doctors Association) ADDITIONAL AMRC Universities DoH and other National modes of support UK Professional Bodies for Platinum applications Notes 1. Applications can be can be made for Level 9 via the local scheme and for Bronze via the National scheme. If a local application for level 9 is successful, the national Bronze application must be withdrawn. 2. Level 9 and Bronze Awards are equivalent in value and prestige. 3. Those who hold B Merit Awards can apply for Silver (easier) or Gold (more valuable) status. 4. Applications for Platinum can be supported by additional mechanisms as shown. 5. Anyone can write a citation in your support spontaneously as an individual. BSG will organise a sympathetic citation for all of those put forward on its ranked list. 6. If you are successful for Level 9 and have asked for BSG support for Bronze or if you learn you have been successful in the previous round, at any level nationally (announced in the Autumn), PLEASE inform us so we can give support to another colleague How are people assessed? There are five domains (England and Wales) : 1. Delivering a high quality service: high personal clinical standards. 2. Developing a high quality service – service innovation and enhancement. 3. Managing a high quality service: local service or (inter)national professional society management,(inter)national health policy development. 4. Research and Innovation: based on achievement, papers and grants. 5. Teaching and training: based on student feedback, innovation, exam activities and (inter)national contribution to education. The scoring system ACCEA uses three scores for each domain: Meets contractual commitment: 2 Above contractual commitment; 6 Excellent: 10 You are not expected to be exceptional or even higher than average on all domains. There is some imprecision about whether these criteria relate to an average or a comparison with those who hold merit awards similar to your present one (see BSG scoring below). Regional differences Forms and a description of the English scheme are at: http://www.advisorybodies.doh.gov.uk/accea/ The process is similar in Wales, but with a different web site (http://www.wales.nhs.uk/page.cfm?OrgID=1&PID=3928). It is slightly different in Scotland (nominations, based on 6 assessment criteria are made to SACDA: http://www.sacda.scot.nhs.uk/). The Northern Ireland process http://www.dhsspsni.gov.uk/index/hss/clinical_excellence_awards_schem e.htm works to a different timetable, with a closing date typically in July BSG’s process Application for the support of the British Society of Gastroenterology is open to all consultants who are established members of the Society. As a large society, the BSG is normally allowed to support 12 individuals for Bronze Awards, 5 for Silver and 4 for Gold. Each year in June the President Elect (Chair of the Committee) writes to all consultant members of the BSG asking for those wishing to pursue an award with support from BSG to send a completed ACCEA application form by Sept 1st. The Committee ACCEA rules require a Committee to include the following: ACCEA BSG criteria for selection Consultant President Elect (Chair) with merit Nominated representative of Clinical Services and Standards award (4) committee (includes training)* Nominated representative of Education committee*# Nominated representative of Research committee*# Consultant An individual who served on the Trainees section 5-8 years ago without (previously Trainees In Gastroenterology [TIG])* merit award (1) Lay Nominated representative from Patient Opinion or other patient Member (1 organisation* or 2 of:) Chief Executive of the Society Suitably qualified member of the Trustees* * Subject to approval by the Trustees Timetable The deadline for final submission of forms and supporting documents to ACCEA is usually in December or January. Because the process is complicated, BSG can only support members who send their forms to us on time. Applicants should therefore fill in the ACCEA form (and send it electronically to Janet Bassett on firstname.lastname@example.org by the Sept 19th 2008. During September, each member of the Assessment Panel scores each applicant using the criteria that are applied by the central ACCEA panel. The Committee will work solely from a copy of your application that you send. Members of the Committee will rank all applicants separately and submit scores to the Chief Executive for collation. In order to establish a wider and more discriminating range of scores, BSG uses a continuous scoring system (0-10) anchored to the ACCEA 2,6,10 criteria and with reference to a level of service expected for the merit level from which the individual is applying. This will not alter the relative ranking of individuals, but will help achieve discrimination between closely similar cases. Scores are collated and totalled. Individuals who are found to have been successful in the previous year’s round, when announced during the autumn are normally removed from consideration unless, exceptionally, they are trying for a yet higher award A meeting or teleconference is held to verify, ratify and -under exceptional circumstances- amend scores. Scores may be amended if an error is discovered or in the case of individuals with very similar scores, on the basis of a broader assessment of merit and the likelihood of success. Discussions may also take place with Royal Colleges or Universities to ensure that the widest range of assessments of merit are obtained. A ranked list of (normally) 12 applicants for Bronze awards, 5 for Silver awards and 4 for Gold awards is established and submitted Sympathetic individuals are approached to write individual citations for those on the ranking list. Applicants submit their ACCEA form. BSG sends their ranked list and supporting citations separately.
