I'm sorry to say your qualifications are not sufficient for medicine.
4 GCSEs is not enough, most UK unis require at least 6.
Of more concern is your A-levels. Medicine always requires chemistry and/or biology (usually both), and grades of AAA minimum.

Your only options would be to do an access course for medicine or a foundation course, which are for people without the right science A-levels; or take a fresh set of 3 A-levels to include biology, chemistry and one other (the 3 have to be taken in the same sitting).
To be eligible for an access course you would need to usually be from a low income background or a poor socioeconomic area; and not many unis accept access courses.
Foundation course are highly competitive and also have similar background eligibility requirements
