Sectioned

Hi,
a trans woman friend of mine is currently being sectioned, and they won't let her shave because of a "blanket ban" on razors, even if she's supervised by a staff member. The staff know she's trans, but the other patients don't and it's highly likely them finding out will make her mental health/situation a lot worse.

Any legislation/NHS regs that would be useful to throw at the staff to get them to make an exception?
