NICE statins plan is 'unsustainable' for GPs, says BMA official response


Personally, it is not "wrong" to consider 10% cut off as other European countries and USA does. It is more "wrong" do deny this purely on cost basis. However Dr Middleton makes a good case and if we are to reduce the threashold to 10%, it must be done in conjunction with promotion for lifestyle mods and increase in funding for primary care to address increased work load. Can government afford this? I doubt it.
