I don’t think you need a phd to work for the NHS but I think you will if you’re interested in becoming a researcher.

Check the university requirements but I doubt they’ll need maths. If you’re more interested in history you’ll be more likely to achieve a high grade which will help you get into uni.

I know Sussex does genetics as I did work experience at their Genome Damage and Stability Centre. Most people working there had a phd.

Have a look on whatuni at places that offer genetics https://www.whatuni.com/degree-cours...bject=genetics

I'm wondering whether UCL has a suitable degree?

I'm suggesting them because they have links to the Crick Institute and the genetics team at Great Ormond Street.
