...any ideas on how to adapt my personal statement (already written for medicine) and work experience?
For this question (which I think no one has answered yet), the answer is it doesn't matter. The (non-Oxbridge!) biomed / biochem admissions tutors are well used to getting potential medical students applying to them as a backup, so they will still consider you on your academic grades. I submitted a 100% medicine PS to UCL for biomed and they gave me an offer without even an interview.

But seriously, consider what the others say.

lol I submitted a medicine personal statement for a finance course or something and got the offer. I wouldn't worry. You could get rid of some of the work experience stuff if you wanted to but it doesn't really matter.
