Yeah for sure.
Most unis want either biology, chemistry or physics, but since you are doing biology thats fine then. An example is ucl

Keele, Lincoln and Bradford accept Biology or Chemistry plus another science or maths. So you will be fine with Biology and Maths.

Lots of unis ask for chemistry, It looks like their are options for courses which dont require it specifically (see randomboy3785 post above)

Perhaps spend 20 minutes and go through all the uk pharmacy courses and see how many options you have. The alternative is to do a foundation year at univeristy.

Its worth noting its possible to apply to both unis foundation years programs and unis without the chemistry pre-requisite in the same application on UCAS. (as you have 5 choices).

Did you like GCSE chemistry? There used to be a lot of chemistry in a pharmacy degree under the heading of 'pharmaceutical chemistry'. If you don't like chemistry you may find a pharmacy degree quite hard.
