Thank you for the information - here is more from the Internet:
Manvers Main Collieries have done much in recent years in welfare schemes for their 6,000 employees. A solarium, in which 650 men can be given ultraviolet and radiant heat treatment in an hour, was open in February 1942, to enable men to enjoy regular doses of artificial sunshine to compensate for that lost while underground. Earlier, in 1939, they installed an aerotone bath for treatment of rheumatism and sciatica among workmen. A second followed 10 months later.
Mr J.T.E.Collins, secretary of the Denaby Y.M.A.branch, brought to the notice of the meeting a matter which he said had been before his committee, that the cases of Mineworkers were attending the aerotone Baathists at Manvers Main Colliery, and having to pay their own expenses and fees. He asked was it possible for the Hospital Committee to meet these expenses out of their funds.
