2004 Evo 8 - 25,000miles. Only had car 12mths and the clutch has starting slipping at about 3,500 rpm, dealers haven't looked at it, but have decided it's definitely got to be replaced - at a cost of £1100. How long should the clutch have lasted.?? (Female driver - approx 10miles a day), and could this possibly be an oil leak..??? Please help.

it is possible that the clutch plates are worn or the pressure cover is weak. Most bikes have an oil filled clutch to prevent overheating and plate wear. Check the manual for this or talk to a service dealer.
M/T car with a clutch the slave is the device that pushes the clutch lever , as it enters the clutch bell housing (the hunk of alum. that is between the engine and trans 'bell shaped..) 400 or 4000? , my guess is you mean, 4000 rpm 3000 on the round is normal./ the engine should idle at 800 rpm. that is just 1 tick below the 1 (1 = 1000 on the scale see the 1k or x1000 on the dial, that means all numbers are times 1000. so point 8 rpm is 0.8 x 1000 or 800.
do not ride the clutch pedal or you will buy many a clutch. the save bad, never cause, slipping clutch. (near impossible) the hyd, clutch actuator is self adjusting as clutch wears. the clutch will grind gears if the slave fails. the slave annoucces its bad in advance buy loss of fluid on ground and level drop on the cutch master cylinder. post the symptoms, and ask for help based on those facts. a slipping clutch is a bad clutch. (or soaked in oil, and same ) please repost real RPMs using the x1000 scale factor for best answer and when they happen.
it sounds like the bands on the transmission are slipping if it is an automatic trans if it is a manual the clutch is slipping if auto take to dealer. if manual adjust the clutch cable out some it connects to the transmission with a thick cable near the bell housing tighten the cable to give it less play 3 or 4 turns
Best check for this is to get the car around 30mph, put it in top gear, and floor the gas. If the clutch is going to slip, this is when it'll happen. If it slips, you'll need to replace it. If it doesn't, there's likely no issue with the clutch and you'll have to look elsewhere for the problems you're seeing.
