Clinical Excellence Awards recognise and reward national health service consultants and academic general practitioners who perform 'over and above' the standard expected of their role. Awards are given for quality and excellence, acknowledging exceptional personal contributions.

Offering awards to those performing clinical roles other than NHS consultants was among many possibilities considered by the United Kingdom wide review of the schemes by the independent Review Body on Doctors' and Dentists' remuneration. This report, Review of compensation levels, incentives and the Clinical Excellence and Distinction Award schemes for NHS Consultants was laid in Parliament on 17 December 2012 (CM.8518).
