No. If you do decide you’d like to switch (yippee), you can do so easily using the Current Account Switch Service (CASS) in-app, which comes with a Current Account Switch Guarantee (https://www.currentaccountswitch.co.uk/SiteCollectionDocuments/CurrentAccountSwitchGuarantee.pdf). The Guarantee means in the unlikely event that something goes wrong, you can be confident that any interest or charges you incur as a result of any problem with your switch will be refunded.

There is an option to partially switch some of your regular payments (although it’s not covered by the Guarantee).
