If the receiver is built into the boiler then no, if the 're river is on the wall next to the boiler then an easy swap.
Try moving the transmitter closer to the boiler in the meantime.

I've had the digistat in same place for 14 years and it's been fine. At the moment it eont work even in same room. Unable to find a replacement digistat but happy to buy a compatible one of one exists.
Plumber: Andrew Smith, Engineer replied 23 days ago
Is the receiver part of the panel or on the wall?

Customer reply replied 23 days ago
I've referenced both boiler and digistat models so you'll find that receiver is integral and digistat is separate.
Plumber: Andrew Smith, Engineer replied 23 days ago
Ok - do you have original blank plate for the boiler where the thermostat receiver sits?
If not you will have to swap like for like
