Electric shower being moved

I have a correctly fitted electric shower in a shower room downstairs. This is being moved to the room directly adjacent to it. Plumbing work is fine. The plan is to move the shower pull cord switch to the other room and therefore using the existing wiring that goes to the fuse box. To extend the wiring, does it have to be a qualified electrician?

In accordance with the regulations, to erect new wiring has the right to conduct a competent person or persons under their supervision. The competent person is an individual who possesses sufficient technical knowledge, relevant practical skills and experience for the nature of the electrical work undertaken.

Yes you should always get an electrician to do this kind of job

As for extending the wire this is a big no no as it can cause a problem and becomes a weak point in the cable

Yes. Any work should be done by a qualified electrician. One of the most common causes of electrical fires is loose wires.
