​Stroke survivors 'quitting preventative medication against GP advice'

Comment

It's their funeral, not ours. We live in a free country, patients have the right to refuse/ignore best medical practice. If they prefer to take medical advice from Internet forums or the Daily Mail rather than a qualified GP then so be it, provided we record that they refused our suggested treatments then it's none of our business.
