a short answer: yes
Get a undergraduate degree, and apply for graduate medicine.
https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/med/study/ugr/applying/entryreqs/academic/
However….
Applicants who have previously studied medicine
We will not consider applications from students who have previously studied medicine and have had to leave the programme of study due to academic failure without successful mitigation (in one or more subjects/modules/blocks) or due the findings of a fitness to practise hearing. If you have previously studied Medicine (even outside of the UK) you must contact us prior to making an application.
So some places will reject you.

I have found a more reliable list..,, https://6med.co.uk/guides/reapplying-to-medicine/#:~:text=Yes%2C%20you%20absolutely%20can!,true%20of%20their%20reapplication%20processes.
Ignore mine, at looked at the medical school websites, and if it didn't explicitly state it, I assumed it would accept.

The best thing to do is email every medical school, explain your situation, and ask for a yes/no response
