All walls and ceilings will crack somewhat due to movement in the structure. If you are talking about great big fissures then it is an issue but small crazes and thin cracks are just a filler job.

Some picture would help us advise you better

Welcome to UHM. As DWD says there are cracks (Hairline) and then there are structural cracks. If you have minor internal cracks that can be caused by expansion / contraction. However if there are cracks on the outside that correspond to the internal cracks then you have a problem

As per DWD's post pics please ?

Thanks for the replies, I've taken some photos on my phone so I will try and upload them at work tomorrow.
I would say that most are hairline cracks but I have quite a lot of them in both walls and ceilings.
The worst one starts above the door frame then goes on to the ceiling
