Go there: The best thing is to go there and complete their records release form and show id. You can also send in proof of identity and a signed request for records - if they will accept that. Regardless, they are permitted to charge you a per page photocopying/printing fee.

Certified Mail and..: Make sure you address the letter to your hospital's patients services manager or medical records officer. In ireland, look up the "data protection act" and it will give you the specifics. There is usually a charge involved and you must provide proof you are indeed the patient making the request.
