My hot water to the shower goes cold after 3-4 mins could please help?

a couple of things to check on the side of the hot water system you will see a valve with a small lever
lift that lever until there is a solid stream of water coming from the pipe
that ensures that the heater tank is full
next -if you have a temperature mixer on the hot water pipe out of the tank ( stops scolds in the bath, shower sink) by controlling the temperature mix at the tank
They are known to fail and shut down the hot water supply by adding extra cold water into the system
other than that get a plumber in to fix the fault.

My hot water is fed from the emersion fed from the boiler and is very slow and takes an age to get hot in the kitchen any idea's

Sounds like minerals are built up in the lines and restricting flow.
The fix is changing out the lines in question. So if your coming from the basement these pipes usually travel through the floors and walls and can be a real pain, Sometimes going outside the building with a new pipe (will have to be wrapped with pipe insulation) and come back into the building in the room or rooms where the hot water is needed. The easiest fix would be to get hot water on demand set up that installs under the sink or in the room where needed. The cost is a factor in the last fix. ........~~~~~*BB

I have a Vaillant Combi boiler, recently serviced by British Gas, given all clear. Problem we are having is the downstairs hot water tap it is a mixer tap, the cold water is fine but the hot water is

Boilers are inherently dangerous for the average DIY for so many reasons, contact British Gas and have them come back and fix it, tell them it was fine before the "service". They may simply have a control valve shut off.

Our tankless water heater is about 3 yrs old and when you take a shower the water is so hot it will burn you and when you try to cut more cold on it turns all the way cold we have it turned down as low as...

almost all tankless water heaters have this problem. I would install a small "buffer" tank. for example a small 5 or 10 gallon electric water heater will "mix" the water so that it doesn't come out of your shower cold, or scalding hot.
the instructions that came with your water heater should have a diagram of how to do this. if not let me know, I can send a copy.
the electric water heater acts as a mixing station.
the problem with most tankless heaters is that the water coming in is cold, average 60* and the water coming out is average 120*. sometimes the flame in the unit can't keep up when using large amounts of water, and you will get cold spots. when this happens, the heater will sense this, and then tells the flame it needs more BTU's, so then you will get extremely hot water.
the buffer tank will fix this by mixing the water before it gets to your shower and will give you an even water temperature.

let me know if this helps

No water pressure in bath tub after turning off hot water heater

It could be back flowing into the hot water heater tank which is not full because of the leak. Even though the valve is closed on the cold water entry side, there is probably no valve on the exit side. That is how it is returning to the tank.
