A list of local crisis services published as part of an advertising feature last week had some incorrect contact details.
In any emergency, call Triple-0 (000). Otherwise the correct contacts for those in need of health and support services through the Bega Valley are as follows:
South East Regional Hospital - 6491 9999
Pambula District Hospital - 6495 8200

The incorrect details were taken from the council’s community directory, which has now also been updated. We apologise for any confusion caused.
