Our Board

Adam Caar

Paul graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Pharmacy in 1996 and has spent the last 25 years working in regional NSW, as well as 12 months as a Hospital Pharmacist in the UK.

Paul has owned and operated Moodie’s Pharmacy in Bathurst Since 2003.  I am also involved in the ownership and running of Pharmacies in the central west & ACT.  Moodie’s Pharmacy has been running in the same location since 1896.

Paul has been on the NSW Pharmacy Guild since 2014 and served on the Pharmacy Guild of Australia (PGA) National Board from 2017 to 2020.  

During this time Paul was the Pharmacy representative on the ADHA (Australia Digital health Agency) for the rollout of myHealth Record (myHR) and electronic Prescriptions.

Paul has seen how Digital transformation is changing the business world & how it operates, as well as the opportunities it creates.  This also applies equally to local businesses, as well as healthcare.

In 2015, Moodie’s pharmacy won a National Award for “Innovation in Professional Services”. Moodie’s pharmacy has also invested in Robotics to assist in Medication safety in aged care.

Paul is passionate about seeing the community in regional, rural, and remote areas have the same access to high-quality healthcare as city-based Australians do, and this can be partly enabled by technology.

Paul and his family love the opportunities Bathurst has, and during our time in Bathurst have seen many changes in the Business environment and seen the City & surrounding areas grow and prosper.
