rota

A primarily UK term for a rotating schedule of similar work performed by a group of individuals in the same field of work or profession—e.g., junior doctors covering a particular service, or consultants working in the same department.

Rotas generally apportion the work equally and rotate night calls—e.g., 1:6 (one night on, 5 nights off)—for services requiring 24/7 coverage.
