The units are MDF (obvs) and I need to replace the glossy covering. I tried painting them and let's just say it has not gone well and leave it at that.

Any idea what this material is called and where I get it? Does it come pre-moulded or do I need to cut it to shape?

Have a look for some self adhesive vinyl. Will have to cut it yourself but should be straightforward as seem to be flat doors vs shaker style

Just looks like some sort of Gloss White Vinyl

Something like this would be fine: https://www.wrapdirect.com/white-gloss-vinyl-with-adt/ although you can probably get it cheaper from a diy shed or ebay etc (but may not be as good quality).

Worst case presumably you could buy new cabinet doors to fit to the existing cabinets?
Yep. My sample arrived and it looks good. My only concern is how I’m going to get it to fold into the corners.

Ah! It’s very thin though. It’s like a vinyl decal
just make sure it's suitable for what you want to do - try it with your sample piece...depending how much the vinyl shrinks the tight/smooth radiused corners like in your OP might be difficult to replicate

the doors would have been 'wrapped' with something like this originally... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJeQaHqvqsc&ab_channel=BelovacIndustries

since it looks like there's bits of the original 'wrap' missing/damaged you'll need to remove the whole lot before putting on the new vinyl or it'll show through.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlFNWTdeRVA&ab_channel=RemodelingTipsandTricks

depending how determined/fussy :p you are might be worthwhile looking in to new doors or getting a company to refurbish existing doors
