Brunel is the only choice because Healthcare is largely nationalized and so few doctors need MBA training.

The MBA is a degree in business. Unlike many countries outside Europe, most healthcare in the UK is not a business. Because the healthcare business is small here, there are limited opportunities for healthcare MBAs. As a result, the only accredited school with a full-time healthcare MBA is Brunel, which is not a well-ranked MBA programme.

I don't know what your chances are but, if you want to maximise them, you should take an MBA at a better school. Specialisations don't matter for most students.
