transfer UK state pension contribution to Switzerland


I came to Switzerland very recently from the U.K. .In the U.K. I made N.I. contributions. A part of NI contributions are allocated for public healthcare and another part is allocated for pensions.

The U.K. has a pay as you go public pension system, so this is not about a transferring assets from a defined contribution fund (like a U.K. private pension fund). From my understanding Pillar 1 functions in a similar way.

My question is how can I transfer the credits/years of contributions from the U.K. to Switzerland? I know that e.g. this is possible within the EU (to transfer credits from one country to another).

The U.K. is still in the EU (though on its way out) and Switzerland has many bilateral agreements with the EU, would someone know if the above is possible? if so, what is the process that should be followed?
