yes if u can get a plasterer who will be flexable and work nights get ur plumber to rip out old bathroom set new pipes and have any electrics that need doing done install the toilet only and let the plasterers in that way all the mess is done before the new suite is installed i work with a few kitchen installers this way leaves a far better finish some are just interested in getting job done and cash in the hand but u can insist that u want it plastered before ur new bathroom is put in plus plasterer will be finished faster rather than have to work round units which takes a bit longer if its a very big bathroom let himd do the bits where sink toilet bath shower are an he will prob do rest of room next night or when installer is finished

Depends how bad it is, if your tiling it all maybe just patch up loose bits if your painting and tiling I would personally tile.
