What about the flow restrictors which come with the Bristan showers and slip into the elbows are they needed ?
I also find on most of there showers you have to fiddle around with the shower valve to set your hot water max temp .

If its not that new then maybe its worth replacing or you could get a new cartridge to pop in it from Bristan.
Also check the emersion temp is not set to high ,if the water going into the shower valve is to hot that could also cause it to shut down.
