It might be worth looking at some university courses online to see what their entry requirements are, as they are likely to vary somewhat between universities/courses.
In general you will be likely to need at least 5 GCSEs at Grade C or above, including English Language, Maths and a Science subject. After that, general 3 or 4 A-levels, including a related subject (Biology, Health & Social Care, Psychology, etc) with a certain number of UCAS points, and once you're at college and thinking about applying it would also be really useful to get some work experience, shadowing or volunteering in a healthcare setting.
Hope that helps.
