Neurology path

If I want to become a neurologist in the future, what education paths would I have to take after A-levels (currently doing)?

I've looked it up online but half of the time, it's saying that I need to study medicine at university and then specialise into neurology, but some others are saying that I can just study neuroscience at university and then develop into the neurology career path.
I was keen on studying medicine but I'm not really sure anymore. Do I have to study medicine in order to become a neurologist at a respected hospital? If I do decide to be a neurologist I would love to make it up to the consultant rank.
Thank you :smile:
