Should be installed in zone 2 of the bathroom and i'd use an unswitched spur

Usual way is to put a switch spur outside the bathroom with a flex outlet plate inside the bathroom

Or possibly a 20A pullswitch then into a connection outlet.

When I installed one of these i just wired a switched spur as part of the ring main outside the bathroom , with a flex outlet in the bathroom

I can't see any mention of the circuit you are wiring from being rcd protected. If it is fine, if not I would use an rcd fused spur.

All circuits in the house are rcd protected,
In the end i did as advised, spured from the bedroom socket with a swithced fused spur which was back to back with the bathroom.

I generally I spur from a local circuit and provide a RCD spur if circuit not already protected with one, for switching I will use either a pull switch in the bathroom or a DP switch outside. Flex outlet plate inside the bathroom to supply the heater. Need to remember supplementary bonding if all circuits not protected by a RCD.
