24-hour retirement

My partner took 24-hour retirement last year aged 60 and returned as a full-time partner. When I reach 60 will the PCT let me do this even if I no longer have a partner?

Current NHS Pension Scheme rules allow members to take 24-hour retirement at age 60-plus and return to NHS work after one calendar month without this affecting their pension benefits.

During the first month after retirement only, your total NHS employment must not exceed 16 hours a week. If you do not have a partner when taking 24-hour retirement, the PCT can put the practice out to tender.
