GPs face major drive to put younger patients on statins as JBS recommends lifetime QRisk score

Comment

Worth pointing out that most statins are off patent now, so not much in the way of Big Pharma profits to be made here. NHS price for Simvastatin 40mg x 28 is currently £1.24 and Atorvastatin 20mg x 28 is £1.60.
