Mixer tap fitted wrongly so when turned to cold, hot water comes out

My mixer tap has been fitted wrongly. When I turn it to cold it comes out hot and vice versa. Is this easy to fix?

Just switch the connections under the sink. Don't forget to turn the water supply off first.
Cold water is always on the right. When hot & cold pipes run along the walls the cold pipe is always under the hot pipe.
