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 9

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

In this autumn issue of 2018, Laura McIntyre, from Hempsons Solicitors, presents an overview of the events leading to Dr Bawa- Garba's conviction for gross negligence manslaughter, and her resulting successful appeal not to be removed from the GMC’s Medical Register.

Her colleague from Hempsons, Chloe Davies, reports on the landmark fundamental dishonesty case of Sandip Singh Atwal, who was sentenced to three months in jail for his deliberate attempt to defraud the NHS and deceive the Court.

Enable Law Legal Director Laurence Vick comments on who should foot the bill when outsourcing by the NHS goes wrong.

Dr Rajesh Munglani, Pain Consultant, speaker and organiser of the upcoming Cambridge Medico-Legal Conference, discusses consent issues in the area of pain management.

We are also pleased to include an article by Dr Chris Bass, Consultant Liaison Psychiatrist, on Complex Regional Pain Syndrome in the medico-legal setting.

Finally, we are pleased to announce that we have released SpecialistInfo’s 2019 medico-legal course dates and have set a date for our 2019 Medico-Legal Conference, which will take place on the 16 May 2019 at the prestigious Queen Elizabeth II Centre, Westminster, London. We have secured several high- profile speakers, including Sir Rupert Jackson as keynote speaker (see opposite page for details).

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).
