WST Chairman Barry Hearn expressed his thanks to everyone who has sent him ‘get well’ wishes as he continues to recover at home having suffered a heart attack last weekend.
Humbled by the thousands of “get well” wishes so thanks to each and everyone of you. Massive shout out to Broomfield and Basildon hospitals – don’t know what we’d do without the NHS. God bless you all and stay safe.

Hearn’s son Eddie revealed on Wednesday that Barry was taken to hospital on Sunday following a minor heart attack.
Eddie said on Twitter: “As if we can’t thank the NHS enough, I want to particularly thank the staff at Broomfield & Basildon. My dad @BarryHearn was taken to hospital on Sunday after a minor heart attack and was operated on yesterday.He is up and well and returns home today in good spirits!”
Everyone at WST wishes Barry all the best for a fast recovery. Many of snooker’s top players have also sent him their best wishes.
