Clinical Excellence Awards – 2021 round

The ACCEA 2020 applications will open on Monday 7 December 2020  and close at 5pm on Thursday 18 March 2021.

ACCEA guidance and application form can be found on their website.


If you would like to be considered for FDS support then email your completed ACCEA application forms, as an attachment, to by

  • 10am on Tuesday 12 January 2021 for platinum awards
  • 10am on Friday 5 February 2021 for bronze, silver and gold awards

Please note that this year ACCEA have made a significant change to the renewals process. Nominating bodies, such as the FDS and RCS England, are no longer being invited to support renewal applications. If you are submitting a renewal application, please therefore submit only to ACCEA and not to the Faculty.

Late applications will not be scored.

Further information

The Faculty of Dental Surgery at RCS England is registered as a nominating body.

We would not normally provide support for local awards. For those considering applying at the BRONZE level you must consider carefully the implications of leaving any local award scheme. If you decide to apply nationally and wish to be considered by us or your Specialty Association you will need to comply with the timetable of the sponsoring organisation.

If you are likely to move employer or retire in the next 18 months you should ask the ACCEA for their advice.

The ranking lists and citations which our organisations supply are considered to be important supplements to the evidence contained in the CVQs.  It is encouraged you apply to both your specialist association and the Faculty for a place on their ranking list. If you wish both organisations to consider your application, you must send your CVQ to both organisations as we do not exchange CVQ information.

As with previous years, the responsibility for the actual on-line submission of the application to ACCEA will rest firmly with the applicant. The deadline is Thursday 18 March 2021. However the College will be uploading ranked lists and citations on Friday 12 March, which means you should upload your application to the ACCEA site by that date if you are seeking FDS support.
