There's no need to re-turf ... we've got summer coming up and you'll spend your time watering and worrying about it, and you won't be able to walk on the lawn for several weeks.
With a hot dry spell coming up I'd just give it a good raking to get as much moss out as possible, and don't cut it too short. Keep your mower on a medium setting ... no lower! If you've got dandelions and other broadleaved weeds get yourself a daisy grubber and just hoik them out
If there's a guaranteed day of heavy rain coming up apply some granular seaweed fertiliser according to the instructions on the pack (Maxicrop do a good one, available online, but there are others).
I wouldn't use a lawn treatment which includes a moss killer and herbicide just now because it'll turn the mossy weedy patches black and it'll depress you and you want to enjoy your garden this summer.
