It would be an option, yes.
If you wanted to pursue neuroscience as a career, you would need a medical degree probably.

:fyi: Neuroscience is not a medical specialty.

Medicine is only required to go into Neurology or Neurosurgery, both medical specialties.

Neurosciences would make you eligible for Graduate Entry Medicine, but it's a science degree.

Read https://www.bna.org.uk/careers/ for what you can do with a neuroscience degree.

Then idk. There are a wide range of courses that seem like they prepare you for a specific career but aren't really necessary.

No you don't need to study medicine, if you wanted to go into research. You would need medicine to become a neurologist doctor but that's different to being a neuroscience researcher.
Most neuroscience masters want a relevant bachelors which could be biology for example. You have to check the bachelors degree requirements for the specific neuroscience masters. Then after that you could apply for a neuroscience phd. Or go straight into lab research IF there are openings for research.

It's up to you. Primarily you should take into account that you should apply to the course you will work hardest in and be most motivated to do. If you're not motivated you won't work so hard and you won't do as well.
If you did natural sciences, with neuroscience options within it, there would be some neuroscience masters that would accept you as some neuroscience masters just ask for things like a 'relevant biological subject' for bachelors. I've seen that on neuroscience masters websites for example one at imperial.
But if you did a straight neuroscience degree, surely there would be some neuroscience masters that would also accept you. The only question is for doing neuroscience later on at masters or phd level, which bachelors looks most academically rigorous or favourable. I can't answer that, I would imagine it would be specific to each university. I didn't answer your question directly but I hope you see where i'm coming from, based on my knowledge.
