Please tell me where you're observing that the water flow is very slow.

In the cistern sink and bath the cold water is barely flowing at all

Where did you isolate the cold water when doing the plumbing work?

Good afternoon, I haven't heard back from you yet. Without the requested information, I can only give you a fairly general answer. I hope it is helpful.

I would check that any valves that you closed are fully open.  Another possibility is that some debris inside the pipework has been disturbed and is forming a blockage.

If you can respond with more details, I can be more specific and likely add more information for you.
