Mixer tap hot water temperature

Our bath has a mixer tap and when turned on sometimes when the tap is set to be fully hot the water is warm but not hot. If we turn off the bath tap and run the hot sink tap in our bathroom we get steaming hot water. If we then turn off the sink tap and turn on the bath tap again we now get steaming hot water in the bath.

I am sure there is a simple explanation but has anybody experienced this before and knows what needs to be done so that we get steaming hot water in the bath every time (without having to run a sink tap to force it)?
