24-hour retirement

I know that for the first month after taking 24-hour retirement I can only work 16 hours a week for the NHS. Is it OK to work 32 hours a week for two weeks and take two weeks' unpaid leave so I average 16 hours a week?

NHS Pensions confirms that averaging does not apply. This means that the aggregate of all NHS jobs during the first month must not exceed 16 hours per week. So if you have a GP post and a hospital post, the total hours worked across both positions must not exceed 16 hours per week.
