Mr BARTON (Eastern Metropolitan) (12:42): (1496) My constituency question today is for Minister Pearson acting as Minister for Government Services. I have been contacted by a number of my constituents who have faced difficulties with the new technological requirements of coming out of lockdown. They have found it a stressful experience attempting to sign up for the Medicare ID on the MyGov app and then linking it to their phone and then linking it to the Service Victoria app. Last year I was informed by my local neighbourhood house that many of their older participants were not coming in for their usual classes due to the stress associated with using a QR code. So my question is: given how much of our COVID normal relies on technology use, what is the government doing to ease the somewhat stressful experience for our senior citizens?
