I'm currently predicted a 9 at GCSE for RE.So would it be a good idea to take Philosophy & Ethics for A-levels with Biology, Chemistry, and Maths if I want to do Medicine?

Yes,RS gives you a range of ethical dilemmas to think about in medical ethics.
I am doing medical imaging at Liverpool university and during my interview I could talk about a range of ethical dilemmas and how to approach them.
It expands you ability to asses situations as well as giving a range of different ways to asses the situation of dilemma.
In terms of the subjects you have chosen, RS would give you a break from your science based subjects.
I am studying a level Chemistry, Biology and RS ; I can honestly say that it gave me a break from the science subjects.
Go for it!

It's fine, however taking 4 subjects is a lot (when two aren't double maths anyway). You may be better advised to just stick to three (be it chem/bio/maths or chem/bio/phil) as getting the 3 A or A* grades is more important than taking extra subjects to get through the initial entry barrier into medicine.

As an individual subject it's a good choice though, provided you aren't planning to apply to Cambridge (and maybe Oxford?), as Cam requires 3 STEM subjects. For most other medical courses it's perfectly acceptable, and some have at least historically positively viewed those taking a "contrasting subject" (such as UCL).
