Valid entry codes 01-05 apply to the Clinical Excellence Award in England and Wales. This scheme is no longer running so no members of staff should be newly returned as having these awards, but they remain in the coding frame for staff awarded previously.

Valid entry codes 40-43 apply to the new National Clinical Impact Awards that replace the Clinical Excellence Awards in England and Wales.

Each of the valid entries for the field can be used by higher education providers (HEPs) in any administration and the country recorded after each code refers to the country making the award and to which the scheme belongs. Once made, the award should stay with the individual irrespective of the country of employment.

This field should be updated when an existing member of staff gains a higher qualification than that already held.

Providers should account for the award from the point it is paid to the individual.
