The Grand Round was “Desert Island Drugs” and featured a GP, an Elderly Care Physician and a General Medicine Consultant (who I happened to work for). The basic premise was “what drugs would you take with you if you were to be marooned on a desert island and why?”
So based on my memories of the Grand Round (which appear in sepia tones through rose-tinted glasses) I will approach the question about what antibiotics to take on holiday with the premise “less is more”.
Where are you going? What are you doing?
My first response to those asking me what to take is to find out more about where they are going and what they are going to be doing.
