Hey. I did a little bit of research and people with a biochem degree and welcome to have a career in healthcare.
I am going to do my GCSEs next year and I was wondering how long it would take for me to become a healthcare assistant. xxx

A Biochemistry degree isn't really applicable to a career as a Healthcare Assistant, which isn't a role that requires a degree.

I think I'll refrain from that. I think you need to do some research. It's your career, it's a big decision.

I don't want you to think I'm being mean by not helping you, but I see a lot of people come on here and basically ask to be told what career to do.

There are a few red flags to me that indicate you've done very little research on this. Before I even applied for the degree I did I had planned my full route to my career and I executed it precisely. That's unusual among students admittedly but whereas I may be at one end of the spectrum you're seemingly at the complete opposite.

One of the red flags is that you use the term Healthcare Assistant. They are not employed in laboratories. You may be confusing them with a Medical Laboratory Assistant, which is a Band 2 role and, although graduates can apply, only GCSE's are required.

The other red flag is that you seemingly showed an interest in immunology and then asked for careers in biochemistry, two different types of hospital laboratory.

For me it feels like you don't really know what you want so please, have a proper look into it.

If you are wanting to work in NHS laboratories in a graduate role, that would be a Biomedical Scientist, just to give you somewhere to start.
