Experts urge GPs to challenge statin prescribing guidance


I was reading the article and thinking exactly the same as VH They suggested explaining the benefits and risks; then the alternative options and how good/ bad they are relative to the drug then letting the patient decide. I remember them telling me something about that in medical school. It was called consent. I am pretty sure that it should not be limited to statins.
