Since opening its doors in April 1839, the Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport quickly became one of South Wales’ main medical hubs. 

At the time it was encouraged that those who could afford it would pay for their own medical treatment rather than relying on charity from others. The dispensary provided prescriptions and medicines for the people of Newport which was funded by contributions from subscribers and people in the town. In essence, people were encouraged to join the local health insurance scheme. This ‘Wokmen’s Fund’ then evolved into the organisation we know today - Plutus Health (Previously  Gwent Hospitals Contributory Fund)




Plutus Health provides a range of benefits for both individual, family and corporate members and an exclusive plan for South Wales Chamber of Commerce members. As an organisation we have changed with the times and now include assistance with a variety of complementary treatments as well as the traditional core offering.

The organisation is run by a team of dedicated professionals headed up by chief executive officer, Andy Wilkins. The Fund also has a board of directors responsible for reviewing the performance and direction of the organisation as well as assessing major company matters.
