    Depends on if you take Chemistry or not.

    I currently take chemistry at a level, as well as physics.

    Yes, provided you take the Chemistry options where applicable. If you complete Part II/III Chemistry you will have as much or more subject knowledge of Chemistry as someone who did a single honours else where, with the arguable benefit of additional background in other (usually related, although not necessarily) areas of science/maths from the first two years.

    Of course if you take as much chemistry as possible in the firs two years then decide to switch into HPS then no

    Do you take Maths? It's generally required for NatSci, and I'd be very surprised if they allowed you to pursue Chemistry without it specifically.
