24-hour retirement

Q: I found your article (GP 1 February) on 24-hour retirement very interesting as I plan to retire and return to my practice as a partner in 2013. Concerning the limit of 16 hours' NHS work in the first month, would I be able to work two eight-hour days a week and take the remaining three days as annual leave? Would this entitle me to my normal profit share?

A: There is no requirement for the 16 hours maximum NHS work per week to be evenly spread across the week, so working two full days and taking three days off is perfectly feasible. You could not, however, work full-time for eight consecutive working days then take 12 days’ leave.

Profit share is a matter bet-ween yourself and the other partners. If you have accrued leave from the partnership, it may agree to your using that to cover the days off during the qualifying month.
