Finding it hard to get past the comments about most people wanting their children to study medicine. I don't know anyone who would want their child to study medicine, maybe I know too many doctors. I don't "want" my child to study anything other than something they are interested in.
In answer to your question, most schools around here do computer science. Sorry, not very helpful.
My OH is a consultant surgeon in a teaching hospital and I myself spend most of my professional time defending doctors at the GMC(and helping them and their families coming to term with their livelihoods being destroyed by a very litigious society , so I know more than most about the pressures about being a doctor/surgeon)
Anyway, most Universities still do not require computing/computer science A levels despite there are some Oxbridge colleges that prefer C/S over Physics for computing courses, Maths and FM is essential since computing is a mathematical subject with a high degree of applied maths, logic (essentially a puzzle solving discipline )
