Could a plasterer repair that section of the ceiling - or does the whole ceiling need re-plastering? about 9x5ft.

An old shower leak above a small kitchen a few years ago has dried out, but left deep cracks in the plaster in the corner of the ceiling.

There's different factors to of ceiling,wall units/trim possibly to remove etc.......the list goes on.
It would probably be easier to get someone round to actually look at it & tell you exactly what needs to be done rather than a dozen or so people on here trying to guess with different answers which is what will happen.

Depends on the condition of the ceiling, a plasterer could repair part of the ceiling, take all loose stuff of first, but it better to over skim the whole ceiling.
