Is there a chance to apply for medicine with a level 5 for maths, considering the rest of my GCSES are A*-B and have all the revlevant work experience?
Universities like St Georges etc...

Definitely - you just have to check which unis have specific GCSE requirements. Off the top of my head, I know Imperial doesn't score GCSEs for medicine. I think Cambridge requires Cs (don't quote me on that), but many will have better grades. Shouldn't stop you from having a successful application.

You can look through the unis you are interested in and see how they use GCSEs/if they score them, and use that accordingly to apply to your strengths.

Thanks and if I get rejected for example from a particular uni would they offer me another course to do? (Not very sure how it works)

It depends on the uni, your application, and the number of applicants to their courses.

Some unis are very selective (Oxbridge) and only offer places for courses you apply for; applying for medicine means you have no chance for other courses during that application cycle.

Other unis might offer you alternatives before or after your interview, depending on the stage at which the application has been unsuccessful. UCL gives alternatives post-interview, eg. for biomedical engineering. Other unis might give you alternatives after a pre-interview rejection. Birmingham offered MPharm, a 4 year master's, for those who were unsuccessful in their medical application (don't think for all unsuccessful applicants, though).

tl;dr Depends on the uni.
