Below are best universities throughout world for your chosen course but obviously you wanting ones in UK which you'll see from the ranking list where they rank about.

End of the day it don't matter which one you goto as long as you pass the degree as they all probably teach same thing as only difference will be is how you taught it,
Oxford & Edinburgh looks high up in list...

The above is very bad advice since it has recommended non-IBMS accredited courses and stated it doesn't matter. If you're wanting to be a Biomedical Scientist, you need IBMS accreditation.

Is that what you're wanting to do?

What I’ve heard before is that it saved you a lot of time if you want to become a biomedical scientist because you are already accredited or something.

I would like to do an IBMS accredited course due to me hearing that it will save time on getting the IBMS requirement to become a biomedical scientist, I would also like to do work in a private company after working in the NHS.
