In the Welfare Department at Ollerton Colliery, Miner G Watkins is receiving Faradism treatment on his injured knee. In the background, two Bevin boys wearing protective goggles receive sunlight treatment. A nurse can be seen adjusting the strength of the light. Faradism is a type of treatment which uses electricity, probably to stimulate the muscles.
