Bathroom Extractor

I am planning a bathroom refit and one of the jobs is to install a wall mounted extractor.

The bathroom is quite small and the fan will be mounted to the wall over the bath (opposite end to the shower head).

It it acceptable to have the isolator and fused spur outside of the bathroom or must the fused spur be next to the fan unit on the wall?

I would prefer to install this like this as all the fused spur boxes are a little unsightly in such a small room.. I plan to channel out and hide all the cable.
