Take it all back to brick work, paint SBR bond onto brickwork, render around all the brick work, moisture proof plaster board (green board) using dry wall adhesive (dot and dab), plaster window wall, after plaster dries seal window with silicone or mastic. Hope this helps you.

You could use an instant plaster filler to patch up the holes and sand it down to reduce any high spots

if the plaster is not stable and falls off, throw it all away, but if it is resistant, you can just cover what has fallen

Taking all the board down would be the best bet but if the boards are dry and in reletivly good shape I would just buy a bag of bonding and patch any holes or uneven surfaces so the wall can be pva’d and plastered after

No need to take down any brickwork aslong if it’s not damaged. Apply pva watered down to the brickwork then bonding coat and skim with multi finish. Or you could plasterboard it to match the existing finish.

It all depends whether the plaster is bad or not. If you tap the wall will your knuckle, it'll either sound solid or hollow. If it's solid, then you'll be able to patch the holes with bonding coat and skim over.
If it sounds hollow then it'll be better to take the plaster back to brick and then reboard and skim.

Hope this helps.

Price dependent as always, It is up to the customer if they are willing to pay the extra costs to take it back to brick and then treat and Dot and Dab the wall. Likewise you can Bond out the damaged parts if the rest of the plaster is still solid to the wall and when dried you can proceed to Dot and Dab over the top.

This really depends on the size of the holes every job is different and the placement as well it might be easier if the holes are grouped together to cut out a bigger hole in a neat square shape and patch with a piece of board

If the wall is in a bad state with some parts down to the brickwork, it's generally advisable to repair the damaged areas first. Fill in the holes with an appropriate filler or patching compound, ensuring a smooth and level surface. Once the repairs are complete and dry, you can consider plasterboarding over the repaired area for a clean finish. If the damage is extensive or the wall is in poor condition, you may need to assess whether it's necessary to remove everything down to the brickwork for a more thorough restoration.

The best way would be to take it all back to brick and re board that area. However that is cost affective. If you need a cheaper way then you can bond the wall where is needs bonding wait for it to go off then pva and skim

You don't have to take it all down to the brickwork you can simply remove the loose bits the seal it in with a suitable stabiliser/primer then using a bonding coat to fill it and level it out and then give it a good coat or two of pva mix and re-plaster
