GPs 'should prescribe statins to younger patients' using 30-year risk score

Comment

Those demanding NNTs are right to do so, but risk confusing population based benefit with individual based risk management. So would I take a statin if I'm in a high risk group? Hell yes, if Chances of harm low and it doesn't cost me much. Leave population based considerations to commissioners
