Fit a wash basin

How can I install a wash basin where no pipework is showing. What can I do to achieve this? Should I contact a plumber? Does it cost much? How long might it take?

"You don't have to call a plumber as such but someone with sounds knowledgeable is just as good.

The pipes would need to be chased into the wall if they are not going to be surface mounted."
