If the moon is clearly visible in my daytime sky in the UK, does that mean the other side of the planet, which is in darkness, cannot see the moon?

The moon rises and sets at a certain time daily for each place on the surface of the planet, depending on where it is in its journey around the earth. If the moon is high in your sky in the UK, then it has already set on the opposite side of the globe. So the answer to your question is yes.
