£36,000 comes to about $46,982 USD. That is extremely cheap (by US standards) for Medical School.
I am unfamiliar with how the British Medical accreditation system works but are you planning to go for a specific specialty (e.g : Pediatric, Pathology, Psychiatry,etc...) or just a general Physician?
From a financial point it is a risky endeavor. Specially if you don't finish. Imagine getting in debt up to your eyeballs and then deciding halfway through that this career path is not for you while still being liable for the debt inquired. But if you pull through it might provide with "safe job" which will allow you to live comfortable after many years of hard work.
I'd say that being a Medical practitioner would be particularly difficult for someone with Social Anxiety ( unless you work in the background like a Pathologist in front of microscope) as you will have to deal a lot people in person. People who are in physical and emotional distress. Emotions might run high on them and their families and you will be at the receiving end. A very stressful situation.
My aunt and uncle are both surgeons and although they are both financially successful they live very stressed lives. My aunt in particular would hit the bottle whenever she would lose a patient. This might not apply to you though.
Also silence on your behalf could also be misinterpreted at is best as being uncaring and at its worst as being incompetent. This might put you at odds with your patients and other medical staff.
I don't want to discourage you from becoming a Doctor if this is truly your vocation. I simply wanted to point to you some of the implications.

Only for your first undergraduate degree I think, maybe Master's as well. And OP already has two.
It's depressing that you can't do anything with a physics degree. Really shows how ****ed society is right now.
That is why I don't blame NEETs for being NEETs. Things are getting pretty grim in the Western World. Why toil when you know that you will get ****ed in the @r$3 no matter what. People used to have religion and nationalism to fall back on.Ironically, the system itself has has eroded those paradigms which were use to grease the mechanism of society. So people have nothing to fall back on but trash pop culture and consumption.
Someone stop the world I want to get off!
