GP retirement

I will be 60 at the end of February, but because the practice's financial year is 31 March and is the same as the annual QOF achievement date, I have agreed with my partners that I shall continue to work until 31 March. Should I take my pension from 28 February or wait until 31 March? If I do the former, can I retire for a day and then just go back to work?

Your NHS pension benefits will not be affected if you return to NHS employment after you retire, provided you take a 24- hour break and then do not undertake more than 16 hours per week of NHS work during the first calendar month after retirement. If you meet these conditions, you can return to full NHS employment without any restriction on hours or on your earnings or pension benefits.
