No, Definitly Not. Any UK medical school will specify a minimum level in English (spoken, reading, writing) and all your assessment will be in English. You will also need to be able to interact with real patients as part of your training so having good coloquial and conversational English is really essential.

See the following from UCL for example

If English is not your first language, then as part of any UK medical school offer, you will be required to show proficiency in English. This is usually by sitting the IELTS exam, and the required grade will be high.

No you won't. For every single course at every single university in the UK, if you have not been educated in the English language prior to attending uni, you will be required to pass IELTS to a suitable level, to prove that you will be able to keep up with your peers. This will be a part of your offer and subsequent entry requirements alongside your high school qualifications.
