NICE recommends introduction of 10% statin threshold into QOF despite GP opposition


Please note the American guidelines are to start statins at 7.5% risk, although they have to pay for privilege of being Statinised! Theoretically NICE are correct, however given the lack of adequate funding for healthcare even for many mainstream diseases, this would be in the bottom of my list. NICE maybe be clever but certainly not wise! Interestingly I look forward to 75% exception reporting!
