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 to Issue 7

Happy New Year and welcome to the seventh quarterly issue of the Medico-Legal Magazine, produced by SpecialistInfo and publishing partner Iconic Media Solutions Ltd.

In this first issue of 2018, we have advice for experts on fixed costs medical reports, MedCo and personal injury small claims from Kerry Underwood, Solicitor, who is an acknowledged expert on funding and the legal system.

We present an overview of (and possible upcoming changes to) child mental health and the law for clinicians by Dr Sarah Huline- Dickens, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist.

We are also pleased to include an article by Dr Sikhar Sircar, Consultant Gynaecologist, on the risk of obstetric anal sphincter injuries during childbirth in the UK and strategies to reduce the incidence.

Dr James Palmer, Consultant Anaesthetist, discusses causes of accidental awareness during general anaesthesia and how patients can be affected in the longer term.

Brett Dixon, president of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL), tells us about the work of APIL and how expert witnesses can get involved.

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