It will depend on your fire risk assessment, is there a fire risk in the toilets if not then fire doors will not be necessary, if there is then fix fire doors.

thank you for advice, cant think of any fire risk in the toilets , could a hand dryer  be considered a fire risk ?

That's part of the risk assessment and for the fire risk assessor to decide. 

thanks, I contacted local fire and rescue really helpful they told me a hand dryer would not cause a risk unless it is not in good operating condition or the wiring is faulty. so great news 

no fire doors required
