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 15 of the Medico-Legal Magazine, produced by SpecialistInfo and publishing partner Iconic Media Solutions Ltd.

This final issue of 2020 includes articles from several of the speakers from our recent Medico-Legal Conference:

Warren Collins, personal injury lawyer of Penningtons Manches LLP, reminds experts how they should all understand the importance of their duties to the Court, and the potential consequences if they fail in them.

Mark Waterstone, consultant obstetrician, covers the hot topic of consent in obstetrics.

Jonathan Dingle, barrister and mediator at Normanton Chambers, updates us on the use of alternative dispute resolution in healthcare disputes.

Also in this issue, regular contributor and healthcare law expert, Laurence Vick, discusses lessons learned from the Bristol heart scandal and the 2001 Kennedy inquiry.

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.
