    What model Baxi is it?

    Could be as simple as you are running the hot taps too fast.

    Try closing them a bit and see if HW temp improves.

    Other than that I would recommend getting an RGI in to check the max and min burner pressures

    diverter valve sounds most likely suspect,but need more info - model will be a good start.
    is it a constant flow of only warm water, have you tried turning the heating off and see what happens?

    Following on from the above, does the ch flow get hot when only the HW taps are run?
