Diabetes UK would like to support applications to the Advisory Committee on Clinical Excellence Awards scheme from consultants who have contributed to the work of the Charity. The awards are given to recognise and reward the exceptional contribution of NHS consultants, over and above that normally expected.
Deadline for applications to Diabetes UK is 23 November 2007. All applications will be reviewed and scored by a panel made up of the Chief Executive, representatives of the Professional Advisory Council, nominated professional members and lay members of the Board of Trustees. Any applications received after 23 November may not be reviewed by the panel and therefore not receive the full support of the Charity.
This year, the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) have asked Diabetes UK to contribute to their shortlisting process by submitting nominations for the awards. This may be beneficial for individuals whose application may receive support by both Diabetes UK and the Royal College of Physicians. The deadline for nominations to the Royal College of Physicians is 1 October 2007. Applications received after this date may be considered by Diabetes UK but not sumitted to the College.
If you would like us to support your application please contact the Healthcare Professional Relations team firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information about the awards is available on the ACCEA website:www.advisorybodies.doh.gov.uk/accea.
