You'll be able to tee in anywhere along the 22mm flow and return.

I assumed as your question was about the CH as there was no mention of the hot water supply, I thought you were maybe renovating and wanted to connect bathroom and kitchen rads up at a later date. As said in many posts - the more info given the better, saves time.

Ok, so we're talking about the DHW. Where else would you tee into ? it has to go from the boiler to bathroom and kitchen - so yes it will come direct from the boiler end as there should be no other hot water pipework.

when you are fitted a combi boiler from a back boiler or conventional, the installer will install so you have your central heating and hot water. there will also be a cold supply, but usually in this form.... left to right...
far left pipe is the flow (CH), then hot water outlet, Gas, Cold water inlet then Return then maybe the blowoff and condensate. IF your talking bout tee'in off for the hot water then either tee off the 15 mm hot pipe near your boiler or tee off anywer wer the pipe goes, with a combi it'll be mains pressure so it'll work just fine :)
