Thanks for the query.

If you mentioned that you want to be tested for HIV or any others infections, they will do all the mentioned investigations.
As you consulted them voluntarily, they will possibly inform you if there is any abnormality in the blood tests.
If you didn't mention that particular test in your requisition form, then they may not do it.
And you may have to go for that investigation separately.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
