    In June 2011 I was forced to retire at 65 by my trust despite both requesting to continue working and my department wanting me to continue. This was a cost saving exercise just before it became illegal to force retirement at 65. I then registered with NHSp and have been working as a bank occupational therapist for the NHS ever since. At each position I have been asked back whenever they needed additional staff, so I can’t be ‘past it’. My manager at my previous NHS post also still hopes to get funding for me to return.
