GPs told to ignore NICE statin prescribing guidance in cost-cutting drive

Comment

We all know statins at 10% is stupid but to not offer them against NICE guidelines is very risky nowadays. Guidelines ceased to be guidelines long ago and patients will use them to sue you when they have a heart attack or stroke and the CCG is not going to pay your bill.
