Jane Sayer, director of nursing, and Leigh Howlett, director of strategy, both of whom received the pay increase, have since resigned from the NSFT board.
Director of operations in Suffolk Alison Armstrong and director of operations in Norfolk Deborah White are still in post on £108,000.
The trust said it held an annual review of pay in September 2016 and recommended an increase of £10,000, subject to the trust coming out of special measures.
“The review identified that four of the executive roles were paid significantly lower than overall averages for comparable roles in mental health and in the region,” a statement said.
“An increase of £10,000 each was therefore recommended and approved.
“Other posts were already being paid around the average remuneration for comparable posts and therefore did not change.”
The Campaign to Save Mental Health Services in Norfolk and Suffolk said the “astonishing” pay rises represented “the unacceptable face of NSFT management”.
“While NSFT bosses awarded themselves £10,000 pay rises for leaving special measures, NSFT was heading towards another inadequate CQC inspection, a return to special measures and the ignominy of becoming the undisputed ‘worst mental health trust in the country’.”
