If you are good at DIY and follow the instructions to the letter of the new fan then you should be able to change the fan but do isolate it at the Distribution Board/consumer unit first.
Or be safe put it up on as a job for an electrician to do.

Yes, you can if you have enough knowledge.
Switch off circuit breaker at Consumer Unit and when you disconnecting old fan remember how connected wires, it could be loop there.
But how Kelvin said, employ an electrician. It is your house and your live.
Here plenty of people around Country who are professional.
Thank you.
