St Gemma's Hospice are a Leeds-based charity providing expert care and support for local people with terminal illnesses. St Gemma's Hospice was founded by the Sisters of the Cross and Passion and opened in 1978. Care is based on a simple idea; that the person is more than the illness. Each of us, sick or well, has unique physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs. St Gemma's tries to respond to these needs in ways which place the highest value on respect, choice and empowerment. Care is offered to patients and their carers in the Hospice's In-Patient Unit, through the St Gemma's community nursing and medical team and via a range of Day Services. St Gemma's employs over 250 staff and 900 volunteers, every one of whom has an essential part to play in the running of its services. The Care Quality Commission rated St Gemma's care as 'outstanding'. This reflects the efforts and commitment of staff and volunteers to provide the best possible care and support to patients and their loved ones, both in the Hospice and out across the community. All their work is underpinned by their vision, purpose and values. The dedication and commitment to their vision and purpose, to innovate and make the Hospice the best place it can be for patients, carers and colleagues is what makes the Hospice a great place to work.

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.
