“Medical foot care„ exclusively for podiatrists

Publication date: 19/10/2011

 :: 10979 Votes  

Decision of OVG NRW (Higher Administrative Court NRW) of 02/08/2011, file number: 13 B 1659/10

Advertising with medical foot care is reserved only for podiatrists. A masseuse who advertises with such service acts anti-competitively if he has no formation as podiatrist. The layman cannot identify this service only as part of the work of the masseuse but expects a special qualification within the range of the foot care. Such advertising represents a misleading of the patient.
