I completed my A Level studies this summer and achieved decent grades ( ABC). I studied very essay based subjects such English, Sociology and Psychology. Although technically Psychology is a science, all radiography courses don't allow it as part of their A level requirements. I'm on a gap year now because I wasn't sure what to study and I didn't want to rush into uni. I now regret my A Level choices and just don't know what i can do about it. Is there anyway i could get into a Radiotherapy course?

You could study and take science A-Levels.
I would ring up the university admissions teams to see which, and how many science A-levels they'll take to see what you need to do.
Here is a list of all UK UG courses for radiotherapy:
If you need science A-levels and you are dedicated about radiotherapy then go get those A-levels! If you don't want to study any more then there are lots of careers where you can be in a caring role where you do not need science A-levels, and a careers adviser could help find these areas.
The A-levels you'd need probably are a biology A-level and one other science, they also look kindly on BTEC health and social care as long as you get triple distinction star, which is relatively easy compared to an A-level. Also a bit of volunteering work at a hospital/ care home/ hospice will help your application to university for a radiotherapy course.
