Would you not just instruct your pension provider, or am I missing something?

Sorry? Donñt understand what you mean.

I have changed my bank account and want to advise the UK authorities who pay me so my pension goes into my new account

Contact the UK Pension Services, you can find details online without any problem. You can even do by a telephone call.

Is there a switching service in Spain like in the UK where all your direct debits and payments automatically transfer over? If so, you may not need to do anything.

And just as a side note, can you please edit your signature so it's in line with site rules? Thank you.

All pensions have a provider, otherwise you wouldn't receive it.
In this case it is HM Government.
You must have instructed them to pay it to your existing account, use the same contact details to tell them the details of the new account into which you would like it to be paid.

UK State Pensions allow one change of bank per year, you just have to call them on the phone, easiest way and at least you know they hav done it, you have to give them a bit of time to make the change as payment to an overseas bank goes via USA.

Yes there is but it's for outgoings not deposits, no bank can tell those you receive money from to redirect it elsewhere!
