Does it matter which medical school you go to?
How will employers react toward people who attended different medical schools, but still got the same degree?

It matters way less for medicine than for other courses. AFAIK if you're looking to pursue a purely clinical career in the UK then your future employers will not care where you went. It could have some significance, however, if you're e.g. planning to go abroad or go into academia. But all med schools are good med schools and you should have good job prospects no matter where you go.

Probably only matter as an actual student because of the social life, teaching quality, bsc, teaching hospitals,clinical placements etc but not really to employers.

Hey :-) StationToStation has hit the nail on the head really. Except perhaps in the instance that you have a particular interest in an area of academic medicine/research or working abroad, once you graduate, it really does not matter which (UK) medical school you go to.
