The room thermostats should be controlling the motorised valves and the micro switches in the valves controlling the boiler. Worth having an registered engineer have a look to check the wiring over.

Without changing anything else it only requires a 230v relay fitting at the boiler end of the existing 'Call for heat' signal wire & Neutral.
Using the Common & Normally open contact terminals connected to the boilers 'volt free' stat. terminals.

Any competent electrician should be able to do this.
