Nice | Lipid modification in cardiovascular disease – primary and secondary prevention

This is a summary of the somewhat controversial updated guideline from NICE on lipids. You could probably only have failed to notice the uproar surrounding this is you’d been living on Mars for the last few months. I am just summarising the guideline here, but please comment if you feel strongly about it!

I have listed some ‘Take Home Messages’, then a more comprehensive summary below.

Take home messages

Measure lipids on a non-fasting sample. Take note of the ‘Total Cholesterol’ (TC) and the ‘Non-HDL’ levels (ie TC – HDL).

"A must-have for any GP locum.

I have used NASGP website since I started locuming three years ago. It caters for all my locum needs, and I found LocumDeck particularly useful for bookings and invoicing. The automatically-generated invoices and pension forms save me countless hours of admin time every month, and the recently introduced e-signed forms are brilliant.

The assistance I have received has always been quick and helpful. The forums and updates have also kept me in the loop with important issues which may affect my practice.

I cannot recommend this website enough. "
