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


All the various arguments are sound but ‘flowers’ comment is the most realistic. It seems that if we don’t guarantee immortality to patients whatever their age or co-morbidities then we are not doing a good job or are unsafe and should be litigated accordingly. Can a bit of common sense be used sometimes. Isn’t that what true general practice is all about or has that all been put in the recycling bin now?
