Low and medium intensity statins by all Sub-ICB Locations

Why it matters: NICE guidance on lipid modification recommends the use of a high-intensity statin (i.e. one that reduces LDL cholesterol by 40% or more). A table showing the percentage reduction of LDL cholesterol by statin doses can be found in the BNF and you can read our research paper on suboptimal statin treatment regimens in the British Journal of General Practice.Please note, we have excluded liquid preparations from this measure.

Description: Items of low and medium intensity statins as a percentage of items of all statins.
