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

Comment

I think society needs a grown up discussion about what medicine is trying to achieve. We all look after patients in the 80-90s who sit multimorbid & dementing in a chair in a residential home but good forbid if they should die of coronary artery disease or any other non-cancerous natural cause as that's a failure???
