Would it be possible to go into biomedical science without a degree in biomedical science? I wasn't sure what field to go into so I thought a biological science degree (not a biology degree) would keep it broad but I'm now wandering if it wouldn't be specific enough to go into say a plant/animal science or something like a biomedical science masters? Would biology as a degree be better? I wanted to keep my options open but would like to go into a form scientific research job.

If you want to keep your options open, biology is the broadest out of biological sciences, biomedical science and biology.
Biological science and biology degrees with good grades are likely to get you accepted into a biomedical science masters, they typically require "life science degrees" with a 2:1 or higher. But you can increase chances of acceptance through choosing more human biology related modules in later years.
I don't know enough about plant sciences to comment, but biological science from what i'm aware does place less focus on environmental/animal sciences, so you may limit your options somewhat in these areas, but again with well chosen modules you may be able to overcome this.
