I am running an evaluation for a CCG who at the time of designing the evaluation were keen to use the 'LTC 6' Could you advise please as to where this tool has come from/its development? I am aware that this LTC6 has been used by Department of Heath, but need to know more RE the tool, for instance, whether it make sense to sum item scores to create a total score
