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


As a patient myself with a cholesterol of 7.7 but a Q-risk less than 10% but a terrible family history my cardiologist is recommending I take a statin but my GP colleagues don't. Whose advice would you take?? Do I wait for the first (and possibly last!) MI or do I start preventative measures now?
