    yes

    You will need a gas-safe person to remove the old gas hob, and I'd suggest provide a gas cooker bayonet fitting, or at least a capped pipe, for future use. Then someone with a saw to cut out the section of worktop where the hob used to go. If you are lucky they can cut out a piece that fits your new cooker. It might look neater if you cover the cut edge, e.g. with J-section aluminium.

    If the old oven is also gas it will also need to be disconnected by a gas-safe person.

    You do not say if your new appliance(s) are electric or gas, or if it is a cooker, or an oven and hob. This will affect what you do next.
