IVF transfer

I have recently had a successful birth following IVF with the NHS. I produced 5 embryos, which went through to blastocyst stage and have been frozen. I am only eligible for one cycle on the NHS - can my frozen blastocysts be transferred to a private facility for insertion or do I start the cycle again?
