What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Welcome and Introductions by Editor Lisa Cheyne:

Welcome to Issue 13 of the Medico-Legal Magazine, produced by SpecialistInfo and publishing partner Iconic Media Solutions Ltd.

This final issue of 2019 includes articles from Nick Savva and Heath Taylor, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons, on assessing the risks of developing arthritis after lower limb trauma.

Also in this issue, healthcare law expert, Laurence Vick, from Enable Law, discusses medical risk factors in women’s heart medicine that are often overlooked.

We are also pleased to include an article by Stephen Hooper, of Eastwoods Solicitors, on the difference between honesty and integrity in cases involving members of the medical profession, and what is expected by the regulators.

Finally, Dr Giuseppe Spoto, Consultant Psychiatrist, comments on the calling of the MPS for more doctors to take up expert witness work, and how this could be achieved.

Once again, the magazine will be circulated to up to 40,000 people in the industry, including doctors, insurance companies, law firms and medico-legal agencies. It is published on the Medico-Legal Section of the website, and printed copies can be ordered from Iconic.

Specialistinfo maintains a database of contact details for up to 90,000 UK consultants and GPs, including approximately 11,000 consultants and GPs who undertake medico-legal work. We also provide 

Medico-Legal courses for expert witnesses and promote the members of the Faculty of Expert Witnesses (the FEW).  

We are now taking early-bird bookings for our annual Medico-Legal Conference on 11 June 2020 in London.
