The National Clinical Excellence Awards have been reformed and renamed the National Clinical Impact Awards. Academic general practitioners (GPs) are eligible to apply for an award if they meet the criteria within the 2022 guidance for applicants, which is available at the following link:

Access to the Local Clinical Excellence Award scheme is a contractual entitlement for all consultants employed on the 2003 terms and conditions. Academic GPs are not eligible for the scheme as they are employed on separate terms and conditions.
